Sharing the planet

YEAR FOUR - TERM 1, 2018
 
​CENTRAL IDEA

All children have rights regardless of who they are

Students in Year 4 inquire into their rights and responsibilities discovering whether these are the same as children around the world; in particular Vietnam.

Concepts

  • Connection
  • Causation
  • Responsibility

Lines of Inquiry

  • The rights that all children should have
  • The similarities and differences between a right and a responsibility
  • Whether these rights differ throughout the world

Action

Action in the PYP is initiated independently by the student as a result of the learning process. Action may be bringing a book or artefact related to the inquiry to school, or student initiated drawings/posters/research. We celebrate our students’ ACTION every day in our class-rooms. If you see your children taking independent action at home encourage them to share their action with their class.
