GRADE 5, EXPLORATION & LEARNING INQUIRY-BASED UNIT - 'LET IT GROW'

  • February 15, 2019 | Kerryn White

The Grade 5 girls have started an inquiry-based learning unit based on plants in their Exploration and Learning/STEM lessons.

They will be exploring plants and learning about how to look after a plant of their own. The girls were taken on a walk to the on-campus compost heap run by the school’s green-fingered Grounds Manager, Mr Mugochi Muchachari. He explained the whole process of using the school’s garden refuse to make compost, which feeds our fields and flower beds. The girls were then given a herb to plant themselves which they will look after and grow.

This project will be linked to thier KEYS lessons where the children will journal the process and compare it to the process of nurturing relationships in their lives.
