As mentioned in my previous post, the Inquiry unit I’ve been working on with my students is all about understanding with empathy. One of the things we did today, was look at real life stories and use them as inspiration to create songs, poems, magazine covers etc. The kids gained so much from this experience and were able to make connections between what they viewed, and their own lives. Iv’e shared the presentation with you that I used with my students. At the beginning of the presentation you will see a breakdown of our understandings for the unit with students responses. There are also great Youtube clips and links in the presentation that you can use in the classroom. Feel free to use this!
