Today, our class started tuning in to our new unit, How the World Works, which is about the earth changing over time. Mrs. DC came in to help with writing down our prior knowledg e and getting engaged into the uint. To help us, she gave us a statement – “Earth has changed over time” – and asked us to write down our thoughts about it.Then, we discussed as groups, watched a BrainPop video, and started an “I See, I Think and I Wonder” chart.
In this unit, appreciation is one of our attitudes. I think this relates to our unit because we have to appreciate the changes that happen in the world, whether we like it or not. We also need to appreciate the changes whether it is good or bad. The concepts – causation and change – relate to the unit because change is caused by something, whether we chose it or not. For example, if an earthquake occurred, it might have caused the roads to change.
Some things that I’m wondering about are:
- What are some ways the earth has changed naturally or by natural disasters?
- What would the world be like in a century?
This unit interests me because I don’t know much about the changes in the world over time, so it would be interesting for me to investigate on the natural changes, man made changes, etc.
