Unit of Inquiry: Sharing The Planet
Central Idea:Human actions affect other living things.
Lines of Inquiry:
We started our new unit, Sharing the Planet. We ate our snack on three days around our school campus to see how we could share our planet with living things. We brainstormed ideas of how and with whom we could share our planet.
When we went on our 'picnic' Eddie and Amelia said that "we can share our water with the plants" and they watered the trees and plants at the picnic spots. Jiarui said "we should share with the family" and she shared her food with her friends. Lucas thought it was important to "save water" and share water and food not only "with animals and plants" but also the "poor people." Kotaru also thought that it was important to "share our planet with the animals." Holly thought that "animals are dying and some need help" and that we needed to "share our food and water with them!"
For our role play area we decided to make a 'tree house in a jungle!' We are working on making the jungle, the tree house and the animals.
