Last week we started a new unit of inquiry under the transdisciplinary theme 'How We Express Ourselves'. At first, we didn't know what our new unit was about. We had to use the clues from the new materials available in our classroom, as well as the different experiences and activities that were presented to us, to make our best guess
Our teachers set out different provocations and materials, wondering:
In our Library session, Mrs. Grant read us a story - or did she? This story wasn't read with any words, we could only see the pictures!
In our main classroom, Ms. Alison asked us: "Can you tell a story?" We could use any of the materials in our classroom to help us!
In our Art class, Ms. Caz asked us the same question: "Can you tell a story?" - this time using visual art materials. Three stories were started in small groups. Two of them have continued in our classroom this week, including a story told with play dough about ninjas and zombies and a story told with drawings and words in book format about nightmares.
In the coming weeks, we will continue with our stories in progress and explored how stories can be told in different ways.
