Where we are in place and time.

 

Central idea:

Evidence of past civilisations can be used to make connections to present-day societies

 

Lines of inquiry:

  • Characteristics of civilisations and societies
  • Connections between past and present
  • Processes involved in collecting, analysing and validating evidence

 

Key concepts: Form, Change, Connection

Related concepts: History, Difference, Progress

Profile: Thinker, Knowledgeable

TD Skills: Thinking (Acquisition of knowledge, Application), Communication (Writing, Reading)

Attitudes: Curiosity, Enthusiasm

 

So far we have been focusing on the children’s own history. We are working on comic strips that display events or memories from our own past. Additionally, we are bringing “memory boxes” to school with items that are of great personal value and showing them to the rest of the group! Soon, we’ll start looking at what a civilisation actually is and put this in a historic context. We’re having great fun!
