Our new unit of inquiry is part of the PYP transdisciplinary theme 'How We Organize Ourselves'. We will be exploring movement through the central idea: 'We move in different ways and for different purposes'. We started this week with a 2-day unit invitation in our Multipurpose Room. We had so much fun responding to the different materials and exploring the different ways we can move our bodies! Check it out!
During our play, we periodically stopped to meet as a group and discuss the different ways we were moving our bodies and which materials we were using. We also thought about why we move. These conversations expanded our vocabularies and helped us to use more specific words to describe our movements. Here are our ideas so far:
As you can see, we were also able to make the connection that we don't move around using only our bodies (Lucy), but also rely on different "vehicles" (Aziz) for transport. We will be adding to our chart as we progress through our unit.
