    Kindergarten Inquiry Unit

    Let's Be Friends — Why should we be friends?

    Big Ideas
    • respect
    • empathy
    • responsibility
    • diversity
    Curriculum Connections
    • art
    • music
    • drama
    • writing

    Students explore the inquiry question by considering why friendship is important, what it means to be a friend, and the importance of being friends with people who are not just like themselves. Opportunities for oral language and playful learning are woven throughout as students discuss, dramatize planning and having a party, enact examples of friendship with puppets, paint and draw pictures of acts of friendship, and create self-portraits. Working with Words lessons accompany each Shared Reading text, and a text-type writing study invites students to write a greeting card to a classmate, friend, or family member.
