Pardisan Park -January 4,2015 Report on trip to:

  We started off our field trip to the park at 9:30 with 21 students. We arrived at the park at 10:15. We paid the entrance fee at the desk and proceeded to view the exhibition of stuffed animals. The students were happy about the fact that we were on a field trip but were a little turned off by the number of animals that had been killed, stuffed and put on exhibit. As the unit before last was related to animals and how important it was for humans to protect them this exhibition of once live animals was really not very appeasing. We viewed animals from different continents that were fascinating to the students. There were many species of deer and goats. There were also insects on exhibit as well as some especially beautiful rocks. As we continued on we viewed the animals from Africa and Asia that were especially huge. They were proud to have some animals from their mother country on exhibit. We also viewed an aquarium of stuffed sea creatures such as shark, fish, and other beautiful sea animals. After viewing these animals we proceed to the vans that were waiting for us and we boarded to go back to school. As the museum curators did not allow any eating on the premises, we did not have a chance to eat snacks. We arrived at the school at 11:10 with no trouble. All in all we really enjoyed our experience at the museum.

Grade 6 & 7 -Baking Activities

In an interdisciplinary task of math (fractions), design (food tech), and science (solubility), the students baked pancakes in school.  They were asked to use their understanding of the particle theory of matter to explain why milk had to be added little by little to the mixture for us to have a smooth and lump-free pancake.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Grade 7 -Science activities 

Obtaining a strip of coffee filter from the teacher, the students drew an pencil with a ruler 2 cm from on end of the strip. They then placed a dot of ink on the middle of the line. They placed the filter strip in a container of water and discussed the following questions:

  1. Which color was carried the farthest? Which color traveled the least distance?
  2. Why did the different colors of ink separate and travel different distances? Use the particle theory of matter to explain your answer?

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Grade seven students -Project presentation 

Grade seven students are actively participating in their “Individuals and Societies” class while putting their inquirer skills to good use as they present their group work on assigned countries all around the world. Students present a wide variety of aspects such as: history, government, culture, cuisine, art, music, and religion. It is our hope that these wonderfully active students keep up the good work and inspire one another to learn new things every day.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Grade 7 -Class activities- Ecosystem in a Jar 

Phase 1

Deciding on biotic and abiotic elements that can be put in a sealed container to make a healthy ecosystem, the students assembled an ecosystem. They made a sketch or photograph of their ecosystem at the beginning of this inquiry and predicted how the elements in the ecosystem will interact over the next three weeks and prepared a drawing of your prediction. They also prepared a chart that would allow them to record any changes they observed in the ecosystem over the following three weeks. For any changes they observed, they suggested reasons that might explain what was happening.

Phase 2 (After three weeks)

They listed the interaction they thought occurred in the ecosystem using their chart of observation. They also classified the interactions according to whether they related to the transfer of energy or the cycling of the matter. The students recorded the roles of the different bio tic elements in the ecosystem and compared their predictions and drawing of the ecosystem with what it looked like after three weeks. Some of the students were risk-taker enough to accept the responsibility of opening the jar with the dead fish in it. They also were caring enough to share some elements needed for assembling an ecosystem with other groups.

 

All the students drew “Concept Maps” to summarize the concepts of: solubility, soluble, insoluble.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Grade 5 – experiments

Edutainment (education + entertainment) is a term that our fifth grade students are so enthusiatic about. Doing experiments and hands on activities leads them to mastery learning and taking actions in daily life situations. Observing different types of cells under microscope, observing changes in states of matter, playing with dry ice (solid carbon dioxide), and presenting what they learned are some of the activities that fifth grade students have don since the beginning of the school.

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

Grade 2 –  Field Trip: Art Museum

December 2, 2014

We left the school at 9:45 and arrived at the museum at 10:45. Due to the crowds in front of the museum, we had a delay of 15 minutes going in. The students were really interested in taking notes on the artist and paintings. They enjoyed the different painting on exhibit especially the bright colorful ones. We took a small tour of the more modern painting and were led to the more abstract paintings. We viewed some paintings using calligraphy which was fascinating for the students. After forty-five minutes the students were a little hungry so we exited the museum and ate our snacks of cake and milk in front of the railing as we waited for the vans to come. We did not have to wait too long before the vans came and we boarded them and proceeded toward the school. We arrived at the school at 12:10 and had our lunch. It was a great day that we spent learning about paintings done by Iranian artist.

Kindergarten -Field trip -Book city 

The Kindergarten students had a field trip to Book City. The children had an opportunity to look into different books and see what most interests them. It was a great chance to teach them how we act in Stores and libraries, how we handle books and how we behave in such circumstances. They learned how to cooperate with the teachers and how to pay attention to the instructions as well. They also showed a great deal of interest regarding the contents of different books. We think that it was a very fruitful visit for the students as well as for the    teachers

 Summer Camp

Summer camp at Shahid Mahdavi is a great way to learn and to have fun. Your children don’t need to be in touch with notebooks, whiteboards and workbooks to learn. True learning isn’t about memorizing Science facts and Math.

Learning is an interactive and lifelong process of analyzing, discussing and questioning. We tried to expose children to as many meaningful experiences as possible at Shahid Mahdavi International Summer Camp.

Our students came, had fun, made friends, and went home happy. At Shahid Mahdavi International Summer Camp we provided some peace of mind for our parents.

Spring celebration

In March Mahdavi International school had their Spring Performance. Students from KG to G6 participated in this event. The whole International department had a very busy month practicing and rehearsing while making sure to remain on top of the class work and studies.

Our IB-PYP Learners presented a great example of cooperation and care along with their teachers and staff.

We would like to thank all the parents and guardians for supporting and surrounding school with their warm words and notes.

Sincerely
