New Units of Inquiry

All grades (1-6) are inquiring into How The World Works over the next five to six weeks.  During these units students will be developing their scientific inquiry skills and knowledge and will investigate how society uses scientific principles and understandings. Below are the learning outcomes for each of these units.  You can take your own copy of these documents from the SOLO Taxonomy display board next to the Cafeteria.  You can also access all the learning outcomes for the first semester (for all subject areas) by visiting our PYP curriculum page on Seisen's official website here.  Click on the images below to enlarge.
