Week #11: Oct. 28th – Nov. 1st

Thank you to Mr. Joshua and Mr. Tarun for being the parent volunteers on our field trip to KidZania a couple of weeks ago. Students had fun dressing up in different outfits, role-playing, and exploring a variety of jobs. The students’ courteous behaviour throughout the day was a testament to their commitment to citizenship and community.

Unit #2 – Where We Are in Place and Time: Family Histories

Central Idea: Family history can connect people to the past, present, and the future.

For our next Unit of Inquiry, we will be exploring family histories as well as talking about the past, the present, and the future. We are asking that students bring in a photo of someone (or more than one person) in your family who is not at KIS. Students should be able to explain briefly who is in the photo and how they are related.
