Unit of Inquiry 1 – Who We Are

Learning Together

Theme: Who We Are

Central idea: Groups of people work together in different ways to achieve common goals.

What are we inquiring into?

  • The ways and reasons different groups work together (connection)
  • How we determine a successful team (causation)
  • What each person needs to do to be a responsible group member (responsibility)

Final Assessment:

Students will work in small groups to design a cooperative game in which the team that wins will be the team that works best together.  Students will write the assessment criteria as a class.

Maho and Yaisana discuss and write how their cooperative ball game will be played (inquiry)

Carter works hard to include all members in her group (inquiry)

Pammy & Lloyd draw details for of their ‘hide and seek’ game for inquiry

Andy and Yuji work on the planning for their game for inquiry

Tonnam, Knitty & Noa decide how they will add original ideas to an existing board game (inquiry)

Tonnam, Knitty and Noa teach us their board game

We learn a new game “Red Purple and Blue”. It is similar to hide and seek. We had lots of fun playing!
