Different Cultures have Different Ways of Living

In our current Unit of Inquiry we are looking at different Asian cultures. The girls did not know what our new unit would be about. To arouse their interest and begin the process of asking questions, they were shown six objects that were covered up. On a large sheet they were asked to think about what the object might be and what it might be used for. Then they wrote down questions they wondered about the object. Once the covers were taken away, they were able to see clearly what the objects were and make connections to see if they could work out what the topic was going to be for our studies. We had some fantastic questions and the girls are enthusiastic about learning more of the country they have chosen.
