Unit of Inquiry: How we organise ourselves

Unit of Inquiry: How we organise ourselves
Suzanne Holguin

The students studied about different types of government in our unit How We Organise Ourselves.

In this unit, the Grade 6 students learned about different governments. We were lucky enough to go to the Japanese Diet and have a special session with Councillor Makiyama, a representative of the Upper House for Kanagawa. As we learned about governments, we studied the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We took action by having the Grade 6 booth at the Festival of Nations become a learning center and art booth of the UNSDGs. Our creative art pieces were then presented to the whole student body on United Nations Day.

As grade six students begin their final unit, looking into how earth's position in the solar system supports life, they map out the planets in our solar system having calculated the relative distances between them.
