The beginning of Term 2 went really fast, and we have already entered into our third month at our new campus. On Monday we will start our last Unit of Inquiry which defines our primary focus for the remainder of the year.
|Central Idea:||Exploring the earth’s natural resources helps us to understand our environment|
|Transdisciplinary theme:||How the world works|
|Inquiry into:|| Natural resources found in our local area
Determining creative ways to explore natural resources
How to work appropriately with natural resources
As this unit of inquiry unfolds throughout these last three months, the little ones in Joy & Confidence class will gain a deeper understanding about the meaning of conserving the Earth’s resources. They will also have the opportunity to refine their research skills in order to find ways in their daily routine to save energy, water and other resources.
Among many other activities, they will make an inquiry into what plants need to live and grow, and will be using their thinking and research skills to explore what are the elements of weather and how they affect the living things around us. They will also investigate how those elements such as water,wind and light can be used to produce energy and why is it so important for us.
