Our next Unit of Inquiry-Sharing the Planet
An inquiry into:

- Peace and conflict resolution
Access to opportunities affects equity for all children
Lines of Inquiry
- Children’s rights and equity
- Circumstances that determine a child’s access to opportunities

Provocation on Tuesday
In the coming days we’ll be launching our upcoming Unit of Inquiry, Sharing the Planet. We’ll be exploring the central idea that access to opportunities affects equity for all children. We’ll be inquiring into the rights of children, the circumstances that determine a child’s opportunity, and our responsibility towards equity.
Next Tuesday, we’ll be putting students into random groups where they’ll experience strikingly different perspectives of equity depending on the ‘luck of the draw’. We anticipate kids will raise compelling questions and might come home disappointed (or delighted) at the lot they’ve drawn. We encourage you to reflect together over dinner that evening.
This week the children have completed their Summative Task about our current Unit of Inquiry.
Please take the time to check your child’s See Saw account for their video and reflection.
