Year 5 Term 4

We are learning about how decision making has an economic impact on our world.

We are looking at this from an environmental point of view.  Our moodle page has some good ideas about where to start!

Central Idea:

The economic decisions within a society have an impact on human-kind and the environment.

 Lines of inquiry:

  • Economic activities and decisions within society
  • The effect of economic decisions on human-kind
  • The effect of economic decisions on the environment

Students will also refresh their skills in being responsible and ethical users of information via use of a BIBILOGRAPHY.

One way students have been inquiring and presenting their information is using  weebly.

These are some of them.

Save our Skins.

 Global Warming Factories Stop Mining
 Nuclear Energy  Deforestation Stop Nuclear Energy

 

 

 

Students last year used WALLWISHER  to post their inital thoughts about the inquiry.

Consider the lines of inquiry….
