Slice of Life #19 - What is #Resilience?



Todays slice honours our grade 6 students, their enthusiasm, and inquiring minds.

Over the past few weeks , all of our Grade 6 students have been gaining knowledge and understanding through an integrated Humanities, Science & Social Studies Unit - #ResilienceStudents are grouped into #Resilience  Communities  and use Essential questions as a guiding lens  to explore; 


  • What does resilience look like?
  • How do we create a culture of prevention?
  • How does interdependence create a sustainable future?
The challenge for the groups is to create a proposal to persuade representatives of the UNISDR to fund disaster preparedness.

In Science and Math students have been learning about the Ring of Fire, plate tectonics, earthquakes, analysing data and applying mean, medium and mode. 
In humanities we have been focusing on the Disaster Preparedness Cycle plus economic, social and environmental factors that affect communities prone to disasters. 


I like the fact that students are making connections, and are excited about the ways in which Humanities, Science and Math concepts can be integrated. 

I'm very proud that they have risen to the challenge!

Today in class we completed our second socratic seminar on our exemplar country Japan. All the 6'ers were well informed, articulate and showed their knowledge and understanding of the process. Bravo!

 Enjoy.
