How we organize ourselves

10 Jan 2019

Under the transdisciplinary theme “How we organize ourselves” and as a of provocation, KG2 learners went into an exploration tour in their school to discover many roles that several community helpers play in our lives. Learners were exposed to the different roles people play in our school community and to the importance of each role. They went beyond getting to know about the roles and started to think what would happen if these community helpers weren’t there to help us, and thus they drew several conclusions imagining how our school won’t be any better without these helpers who are always there for us. Learners were introduced to different roles and tools used by each community helper, like the shears of the gardener, the electronic tools of the IT manager, the keys of the buss driver, and the nurse’s first aid briefcase. This provocation has widened the students’ inquiry lens and raised tensions that they started to find answers for. As a first step into inquiry, they sat in the story corner and chose the stories that talk about community helpers, relating their first hand experience to how each community helper’s role contributes to the welfare of our community. Besides, some learners learned about new roles in these stories, such as those of police officers and firefighters.
Finally, learners started to construct knowledge, sought answers to their questions using literature, and related their findings to their daily lives.
