Bringing Science into How We Express Ourselves

Students in Grade 5 recently completed their How We Express Ourselves unit of inquiry.  The central idea for this unit was "Through play we express our feelings and ideas and come to new understandings".  The students were inquiring into communicating through play, the imaginative use of materials and the roles of toys and games in play.  At the same time they were exploring the science concepts of force and motion to design a one minute game to play with their 2nd Grade buddies.   Finally students were able to reflect on their learning.   The whole 6 week process was documented and turned into a video.  Enjoy!
