UOI-Sharing the Planet
This week we continued learning about our new Unit of Inquiry. We took a tour of the campus with Mr Duc (UNIS Operations Manager) and he showed us all of the plants and animals that are in UNIS. We learned about what happens to the most vulnerable animals during the rainy season and where they go to survive. We saw frogs, cicadas, birds, butterflies, lizards, dragonflies and many different types and plants, trees and flowers. Thank you to Mr Duc for taking the time to teach us all about our UNIS habitat.
After our tour of the campus, we did a See, Think, Wonder thinking routine. We also talked about what UNIS used to look like before our school was built. We talked about what kinds of animals might have lived there and why they didn’t live there anymore.
This week we had Elliot’s mom, Ms Susanne, come in and read us a book in Swedish. We learned that Ms Susanne knows Swedish, French, English and a little bit of Vietnamese. Thank you for reading us a book with a very important message about crying and the acceptance of boys, girls, moms and especially dads crying.
Grade 5 friends teach us how to Take Action!
We owe a big thank you to the three Grade 5 students who came to speak to us about their Exhibition project on reducing and reusing waste in our school community. Their message connected very strongly with our current unit and we were grateful to hear about ways in which we can take action to reduce waste and reuse it in meaningful ways. They even wrote a Food Waste Rap and played it for us. Look out for their posters in the cafeteria which outline food items that can be reused and added to our school composting system.
