This week, grade 6 students have started the new Unit of Inquiry “Where We are in Place and Time”. It is the an inquiry into orientation in place and time;the relationships between and the interconnectedness of individuals and civilizations, from local and global perspectives.
Prior entering the new unit, students were given a provocation activities to give them the idea of what is the entire unit about. The teachers have prepared some artifacts to be shown and the students explored the possible use of each artifact and how these artifacts connect with today’s societies.
The provocation activity was a great success. Students took the pleasure of exploring each artifacts and we could hear interesting discussion happened among them.
