    Kindergarten Inquiry Unit

    Solving Problems — How can we solve problems?

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

    Students consider the inquiry question by exploring common everyday problems. They will evaluate how the problems were solved and generate alternate solutions, using both empathy and respect for others. Opportunities for oral language and playful learning are woven throughout as students discuss problem scenarios and solutions, role-play problem-solving situations, and use puppets and masks to act out alternate solutions. Working with Words lessons accompany each Shared Reading text, and a text-type writing study invites students to write an account about how they solved a problem.
