Our ‘How the World Works’ Inquiry Cycle

TUNING IN

We started our How the World Works unit by sharing our prior knowledge about Movement, Force and Structure. The teachers questions such as ‘what is movement?’, ‘how does it look like?’, ‘can you move?’, ‘what makes things move?’, how can you make something move?’, ‘what makes something moves fast or slow?’ helped us to think and went further with the inquiry.

FINDING OUT AND SORTING OUT

We explored these concepts through various experiences, experiments and explorations.

We found out that movement is created by forces. There are different types of force and they can come in the form of ‘Pushing’ and ‘Pulling’.

 

GOING FURTHER

Soon we brought these finding and gained knowledge into our playful and fun activities.

Nu: “Pull it. I pull it using my hand.”

Qu: “Pull.”
