UOI:-

Students learned about the importance of history by watching two videos. They acknowledged the fact that history helps us to find solutions to our problems in the present world. They listed such other reasons of knowing about history’s importance in their exhibition journal. Furthermore, they explored five different stations each of which had a different idea to cater to. Students had to write their reflection for each station using the tool ‘I see, I think, I wonder’.

Homework:-

Maths: Solve problems in your Maths NB

1. Three T-shirts cost 15 dollars. How much do 5 T- shirts cost?

2. A child can run 5 blocks in 2 minutes. How long does it take the child to run 8 blocks, at the same speed?
