For our final unit of the year, students in the Excellence class are learning all about the different communities they belong to. From our classroom community to the larger community of Nonthaburi, students are looking into what is needed for a community to thrive and what is wanted within a community in order for the people living within it to be happy.
During the past three weeks, the excellence class has sorted out the basic aspects of a community. Things like the people, hospitals, schools and banks. They have taken this new understanding and have made a small version of a community within our own classroom. They have made their own Hospital, Tops Market, Bank, Recycle Center, Airport and Construction Zone.
Each day, students make the decision of what they wish their profession for the day to be. They take their personal wallets with them, spend the morning workings within their rights and roles, and at the end of the lesson, make their way to the bank where they receive their pay.
Our class has loved taking on new roles while considering the laws in place within their small community. They have shown an understanding that the laws they have put in place are there for a reason. We have laws to keep us safe and allow for everyone to be heard.[envira-gallery id=”824″]
