UOI 1 : Where We Are in Place and Time

Grade 1 students learnt about “we seek a place where we have a sense of belonging” in the first UOI. At the beginning of the unit, we started with playing hide and seek as the tuning in activity to introduce the word “seek” , engage students in the topic and to asses their prior knowledge as well. They had class discussions and group work to create posters and mind maps about places they know and feel that they belong to. They also learn about challenges they face and various ways to adapt in a new place. To get more information about challenge and adaptation, we invited Pak Yudha who shared his experience, thoughts and feelings when he studied in Japan 3 years ago.
