Possible connections to learning for over the break:

  • Where We Are In Place and Time (Exploration)
    For several weeks, students in grade two have been inquiring into the central idea: We explore to discover and understand our world.
    “Exploration” can take place in another city, another country or even right here in Hanoi.
    Some areas to think about or talk about over the break are:
    – What did you need to pack?
    Where did you go? What transportation did you take?     
    – What interesting discoveries did you make? (landmarks, natural wonders, sights, food,
    – How has travel and exploration affected your destination? Are there any negative impacts?
