Students will experience 6 Units of Inquiry each year at Fifth Avenue. Each unit is organized under the IB PYP transdisciplinary themes. "These themes provide IB World Schools with the opportunity to incorporate local and global issues into the curriculum and effectively allow students to “step up” beyond the confines of learning within subject areas" (www.ibo.org).
4th Grade's Current Unit of Inquiry
Sharing the Planet
An inquiry into rights and responsibilities in the struggle to share finite resources with other people and with other living things; communities and the relationships within and between them; access to equal opportunities; peace and conflict resolution.
Communities are built and sustained through relationships.
