With the Learner Profile being the centre of the IB PYP, this interactive activity is a great way to help the children learn what it means to become a whole learner. ! This flip flap book is a fun and engaging , interactive activity that can be used to help students in grades 3-6 learn more about the IB PYP Learner Profile and how it pertains to them as learners. The kids thus make the connection between the Learner Profile and the IB Attitudes.
I have used this activity with my 4th graders at the beginning of the year, over the course of a week. Each day we would focus on a few of the profile traits with related texts, and collaborative activities and use the flip flap book to reinforce their knowledge and understanding with a personal direction.
I know of colleagues who have referred to this flip flap book over the course of the year as they focused on a monthly profile trait or within their units of inquiry.
The booklet is easy to assemble, with clear instructions for students to follow independently. It can be:
Glued into interactive notebooks
Used as a stand alone booklet that the children can refer to within their working binders
Referred to for student led conferences.
Getting to know the IB PYP as a back to school activity.
If you like this activity, you can also find a flip flap book for the IB Attitudes or buy the bundle and save.
You can find more ideas and resources for the IB PYP in my store and on my blog.
