IPC Exit Point Presentations

S.Y. 2019-2020

This term our grade 2 class learnt about the science of freezing to make our own ice lollies and ice desserts. It is a unit from IPC called Freeze it! In this unity, they learnt all about solids and liquids and how a liquid can be cooled to make a solid and how a solid can be heated to make a liquid! For their knowledge harvest week, they examined the ice using their hands and discussed about what does ice feel like and look like and what can we do with ice.
For their exit point activity, the grade 2 class did a food fest by making Frozen Healthy Banana Ice Cream, Khmer Mixed Fruits Shaved Ice and Banana Con Hielo, which the grade 1 students were invited to be the customers and the grade 2 were the sellers!
During the course of this unit grade 2 students have learnt how molecules behave in particular and predictable ways. When we prepare food we are transforming inert molecules into the energy we need in order to live. Could anything be more important than this?

This IPC unit, “Do You Live Around Here?”, gives students a chance to learn about habitats and where they live. They also learn about homes around the world, different habitats within school grounds, how to design a shelter to stay in using the provided materials.
For the exit point of this unit, our grade 4 teacher and students took the opportunity to build their shelters using recycle materials (e.g. old PVC sheet, water pipes, strings, old mats, plastic bags, etc). Students also had a chance to experience what camping is like and got to play some team building games/activities. They also planned a yummy BBQ picnic to end the day!

This term our grade 6 students learnt about Earthquakes and Volcanoes from the IPC unit called Active Planet. This unit gives the children a chance to learn about how the Earth is formed, about Pompeii, hot and cold colours, what makes buildings strong, how to use different sequences of movement to show the story of volcanoes, about legends associated with volcanoes, what happens when a volcano erupts, and about international organizations that work after natural disasters occur.
For the exit point, the grade 6 students created a museum-style exhibition on volcanoes and earthquakes – The Active Planet. The purpose of the exhibition was to inform and inspire other children in the school to understand more about the natural disasters. Also we would like our students to practice on their presentation skill. Each group aimed to make their display as interactive and exciting as possible to the audiences.

Entry Point and Knowledge Harvest of Unit “Making New Materials”
For this IPC unit “Making New Materials”, grade 5 students learnt about the properties of different materials. They used their inquiring minds to ask good scientific questions.
They m also learnt how to write a science report, using words like hypothesis, procedure and result.
They started their unit with an Entry Point and a Knowledge Harvest and the students were eager to learn more about solids, liquids and gases. Students observed how materials can be changed and whether we can get them back once they’ve been changed.
They did an observation with coffee, flour, sugar and salt being mix with water. Student wrote a Science Report that begins with the question they investigated – what will happen when we mix these solids with water?

Knowledge Harvest Stage of Unit “Making New Materials”
Students are asked to classify liquids by tasting.
In a separate cup, soda water, sprite and water are being served. Now having a tasting session, students are asked to taste each liquid and describe its properties and try to guess what’s inside the cup.
Using a chart, students are expected to list down all their observation after the tasting session and try to figure out the difference and similarity with the given liquids.

Knowledge Harvest Stage for Unit “Making New Materials”
Observing what happen to each solid when it’s heated. Students took the measurements and noted down the changes.

Exit Point Activity of the Unit “Making New Materials”
After the experiment of mixing, melting, tasting, now grade 5 used their knowledge of what they have observed during the Entry point and Knowledge harvesting stages to create new materials.
We are surrounded by amazing materials that can be shaped, combined, condensed, frozen, melted and burned.
The students did a fantastic job hosting their “Simple Science Experiments Roadshow” as part of their IPC Exit Point. Each student demonstrated, explained, and gave information regarding the science experiments/ tricks that they used to create the new materials.

Activity: Grade 3 IPC Exit Point – Our Home (Art Gallery)
Our grade 3 students organized an Art Gallery for their Exit Point of IPC unit – Our World to the rest of the students. Every masterpiece they made is sending a message to everyone that our world is important, because we share it with lots of other living things. We need to treat our world with respect to ensure that it is well looked after so that every person, animal and plant can live healthily and enjoy it.

I.P.C Theme: “Hooray…….Let’s Go On Holiday!” Grade 2, were given the opportunity of roaming the globe to choose the holiday of their choice. They selected four different locations, worldwide and by the magic of ‘Photoshop’ were instantly transported there! This was a highly interactive experience. Allowing them to use their imagination when answering questions about their fantasy travels.

Our aspiring bakers in grades 1 and 2 certainly have had great time having the chance to be at Tous Les Jours Bakery as their field trip for this term. They have learnt the ingredients needed in baking muffin, went to the kitchen and learnt everything that they’ve got to know about the oven and the process of baking. And for the most fun part, decorating their own cupcakes. Our students had a blast experiencing A DAY IN THE LIFE OF A Cup Cake Maker, which also relates to our IPC unit “A Day in the Life”. Here at MTEL International School, these enjoyable activities are our way of giving our students’ learning brought to life by real places and real people, and showing them that we always want them to have fun whilst learning, and most importantly, we support and encourage them in whatever dreams and aspiration they have.

In the IPC unit, “A day in the life”, our students have been learning about the different jobs in a community. Each job has different characteristics and roles. To make the learning more enjoyable and authentic, we decided to bring our students on a field trip to Domino’s Pizza to experience the life of a pizza maker! Our students had a great time molding dough, applying sauce and toppings, and preparing their own personalized pizzas!
In this field trip, they have learned the importance of proper hand washing before making a pizza. They also learned the proper handling and techniques of molding dough with the help of Domino’s Pizza Crew. Our students thoroughly enjoyed sprinkling mozzarella cheese, and placing pepperoni on their pizza. And the best part of all was to taste their own pizza at the end!!!
