Field trip to the ZOO

On Tuesday I5A and I5B went to the zoo for our motivational activity of our new IB unit.   Unit 4, is probably the most abstract unit of the four with the central idea as “Art can express stories”.  The lines of inquiry for this unit are 1. Art a helpful tool of comprehension, 2. Expression through music and the body, and 3. Drama as a form of communication. The last line of inquiry is about participating in an end of year play called, “A Qué Sabe La Luna” where different animals are represented. The idea about going to the zoo was that the children watched, analyzed and learned how some animals behave in their surroundings.  The children had a great time at the zoo!
