Promoting Peace and Understanding

“Peace cannot be kept by force it can only be achieved by understanding.” -Albert Einstein

Our class is participating in a world wide peace crane project.   They have been busy writing letters, poems about their home, folding peace cranes and making videos. These will all be sent to America where author/illustrator Sue DiCicco will take them on a school tour as a way to promote understanding between students around the world.  Below is a video Luca made about what peace means to students at UNIS.

Week in Review:

    • Math: Identifying patterns in numbers to 1,000.  Learning word problem solving strategies.
    • English:  Writing friendly letters and poems to students in America.  Learning and practicing reading strategies.
    • UOI: Practicing making scientific observations. Inquiring into how the movement of water changes the earth’s surface.

What did you learn this week?

“We learned new reading strategies. We learned how to check for understanding and we learned cross checking.” – Aisiyah

“I learned that scientist can learn by looking at things really closely and you can be a scientist as a kid.  You can learn a lot from studying normal rocks.”- Seunghun

“You can solve math problems in different ways.” Ivana
