Our Unit: How the World Works
We've been busy with all manner of natural science as we move towards the end of our unit on How the World Works. All the Grade 3 classes had the chance to visit the Naturkundemuseum to further explore the learning we had done on the geological composition of the Earth and our place in the solar system, and this also gave us a good insight into the different natural disasters that take place around the world.
We have begun to look at earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, and other disasters in greater detail, combining theoretical understanding of these phenomena with individual case studies that highlight the processes at work. Central to the unit is the ways in which humans respond to these disasters, and so we have examined the role the scientific community plays in understanding our world as well as humanitarian relief efforts to aid those affected by these disasters.
During the last week all children have been very creative! As part of our author and literature unit we were focusing on poems. We spent lots of time exploring various poems, finding differences and similarities. A workshop focusing on poems gave children the chance to become authors themselves, interpreting poems during role plays and in arts as well as acting as reporters making interviews about the workshop and workshop participation.
As a next step we will be focusing on three different authors and their works. This will serve as a preparation for the upcoming class trip to the ATZE Theatre on Friday, October 16th, where we will be viewing RICO, OSCAR UND DIE TIEFERSCHATTEN as a highlight of our unit. We are sure children will love the show!
