    Kindergarten Inquiry Unit

    Caring for the World — How do we care for the world?

    Big Ideas
    • stewardship
    • sustainability
    Curriculum Connections
    • art
    • music
    • drama
    • writing

    Students explore the inquiry question by considering how they can take responsibility for looking after the natural world. Opportunities for oral language and playful learning are woven throughout as students discuss, dramatize taking care of pandas and creating a community garden, organize and run a schoolyard clean-up day, grow and take care of plants, and paint pictures of ways they would take care of the world. Working with Words lessons accompany each Shared Reading text, and a text-type writing study invites students to write about a positive action to take care of the world.
