IB UNIT: WHERE WE ARE IN PLACE AND TIME
The central idea for this unit is, "Discovery and migration lead to new understanding."
We will explore three main questions...
1) What are the connections between location and migration?
2) How are the different forms of energy utilized?
3) how do new technologies impact life?
The learner profile traits we will be focusing on are communicator and risk-taker.
