How We Organise Ourselves
The movement of the Earth affects how we behave.
Lines Of Inquiry:
- Earth’s movement in space
- Ways that climate affects humans
- How we use time to organise our lives
Change – How does it change? Connection – How is it connected to other things?
Assessment Part 2 Task:
Use a new presentation method to show your new learning i.e. if you presented with a poster in UOI#1, use a different method this time – perhaps a booklet, a PowerPoint, a verbal presentation…
Students write 3 or more questions about Lines of Inquiry #2 and #3 (above), but choose only your best question. Think about: different climates in the world, and how time affects us each day.
Use your prior knowledge and add further information from your research.
