Hope you all had a great Tet Break, once again, Happy New Lunar Year!
THE HUMAN BODY SYSTEMS
Fourth Graders delve right into the human body with provocations led by their teachers as soon as we got back from Tet break. Through this Unit of Inquiry, they will develop an understanding of the central idea:
Our body systems are affected by our choices
For them to further develop their knowledge about several main structures and important systems that keep the body alive, the following lines of inquiry will be explored:
The different body systems (form – what does it look like?)
How body systems work (function – what makes them function?)
The effect our choices have on our body systems (causation – what causes it to happen?)
The human body consists of several organ systems. Each system is made up of organs and other body structures that work together to perform a specific function. Most scientists divide the body into 11 systems. At home, you and your child can further discover what the systems are, how they function and even conduct experiments to see how a chosen activity affects a chosen system(s).

Systems for the Greater Good – Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation
As you know constructing and sustaining an effective system requires collaborators that one can always count on. You, our UNIS Parents, are the ones who make us stand out when it comes to serving our community and living our school’s vision and mission! The role that UNIS Hanoi plays in keeping underprivileged children safe and allowing them to gain access to basic rights such as education and protection is crucial and goes a long way!
Thus, your sponsorship, contributions, and support for our annual Blue Dragon Walkathon are very much appreciated! Our class’ students, 4C UNITED, were the main organizer of this year’s Blue Dragon Walkathon. We are hoping to be role models by being the class with the most donations. If you are thinking of contributing to a system for the greater good, we are still accepting donations until next week Friday.
