Inquiry - Where We Are in Place and Time

Central Idea: Life adapts and changes over time as a result of advances in our world.

Lines of Inquiry:

  • Family’s roles, responsibilities, and traditions are impacted by their culture.
  • Living things form unique groups.
  • Technology changes with us based on our needs.

Essential Question: How have people changed?


past - what happened before.

present - today.

future - what will happen later.

calendar - shows the days, weeks, and months of the year.

history - the story of the past.

generation - people who were born at about the same time.

Happy MLK Day!
