4th Feb

Today the fifth graders began with their 'Storyboard'. They were given a setting: A bare place where a river is flowing with a few trees and animals near by. They designed a character for themselves: their name, personality, nature, occupation, etc. Thie activity will continue for a few days.

The children also did an activity on converting units for time. Each group chose another group whom they want to challenge with a difficult quantity to convert. Before challenging, the groups had to solve the problem themselves first. Thie fostered their critical thinking skills.

Towards the end of the day, the chidlren illustrated the IB learner profile as they understand it.
