Here’s how the inquiry unit works!
Are you nervous about trying to teach a unit of inquiry for the first time? Do you want to know more about Project Based Learning? Did you want your students to complete an inquiry based project by themselves? Are you looking for differentiated learning? Do you teach a split grade in primary? This is an easy to follow, introduction to teaching an inquiry based research project for Primary Grades. This unit will work well for all primary grades, no matter what your curriculum. There are adaptations for both Canadian and American spellings. This unit was originally designed with the new BC Curriculum in mind, but is so flexible, that it will amaze you, no matter where you teach.
