Inquiry Question – this week’s homework

Dear parents,

Please read this post to help your child complete their homework this week. Each student needs to answer this question:

What is a choice you can make that would impact your environment?

We talked about this in class, and  I was so amazed at the fantastic discussion that I would love to see what ideas the students have after talking about it with their families.

Please click on ‘Leave a Comment’ and help your child to type their answer.

Here are some examples of what we talked about:

Results of one of our discussion this week. Can you think of other choices that affect perhaps animals, plant life, or our health?

Please also visit our Unit of Inquiry 2 – Sharing the Planet page for an overview of what we are studying.

There are some new photos of students in the Math page and the Pictures page.
