This Week in 5C

by sanjaylalwani on March 27, 2015

This week in 5C we learned about the history of Hong Kong through guest speaker Graeme Still and a trip to the Hong Kong Police Museum. We were also treated to an assembly and workshops with the author David Schwartz, who got students wondering “How Much is a Million,” based on his children’s book.

In our unit of inquiry, we are exploring perspective and bias through the book Three Wishes by Deborah Ellis, which tells the stories of both Palestinian and Israeli children. Students made some great real life connections and posed questions that many presidents and government officials around the world are also trying to tackle. Connecting literacy and visual literacy to our unit we are learning to reflect on how to infer from photographs and to remain open-minded in order to create a bigger overall picture of an issue.
