From biking to baking to longboarding, students at a Thunder Bay, Ont., public school are sharing how they’re persevering through the COVID-19 pandemic.
Students at école Gron Morgan recently took on the project, which has allowed them to showcase how they’re learning new skills to cope?with the stresses brought on by the pandemic.
“The students were asked to choose their own interest or a skill they’ve learned, like biking, or baking or even math, and explain how they set a goal, pushed through any mistakes and struggles, and with that determination, accomplished their goal,” said Jo-Anne Lacroix, who teaches Grades 5-6 and 6-7. “The pandemic has been hard on everyone, but especially for our kids.
It was mostly just a happy, enjoyable experience to see my friends accomplishing something that they were really great at.– Mya Piper, Grade 7 student
