Lifelong Learning

As a provocation for our transdiciplinary theme “Sharing the planet” under the title “World of animals”, learners had a chance visiting a supermarket in order to be familiar with the products we are in need for, and relate them to their possible animal sources. Thus, it created a tension phase which drove learners to ask questions like: “How can we make ice-cream?”, “From which animals can we get meat?” “Do tigers eat cats?”, “Can we get a giraffe to our classroom?” and many more…
Throughout the inquiry, we aimed to develop students’ thinking, learning, and reflections by letting them demonstrate an understanding of the unit’s transdiciplinary components. Engaging in their own learning process, learners worked in groups and presented their findings to their peers. This implemented the strategy of cooperative learning, improved their research and communicating skills, and built up their inquirer profile. To take our inquiry more in depth and build up a knowledgeable profile, they had the chance to visit the “Al Akhdar” dairy product factory; thus, enthusiasm and curiosity attitudes were shown in learners while asking the farmer different questions. The unit was open-ended where students extended their thinking and challenged themselves in taking actions in different situations. For instance, when our pet, the rabbit, got sick learners used their problem-solving and group decision making skills and decided taking the rabbit to the Veterinarian or the pet store as an action. Moreover, other than taking action in school in keeping our pet animals clean, learners were motivated in taking action outside the school by bringing food from their home to our pets which built up their caring profile and responsibility skill.
It is remarkable to see how these inquiries lead our learners to take the final action in creating a figure of an “Eco-friendly” market and coming up with a united agreement under the title “We want to protect our environment”. In taking these actions, kids develop essential skills, attitudes, and profile, establishing process that will support lifelong learning.
