I created this project to go with the Big Idea from BC's Renewed Curriculum: "People from diverse cultures and societies share some common experiences and aspects of life."
The Guiding Question for this Inquiry Project is: What is Culture? Students will look into their own heritage by finding some primary resources like interviewing their parents/grandparents.
Students will be engaged in many Curricular Competencies like: "Use Social Studies inquiry processes and skills to ask questions; gather, interpret, and analyze ideas; and communicate findings and decisions." and....
"Ask questions, make inferences, and draw conclusions about the content and features of different types of sources (evidence)"
Students will also have the opportunity to Self-Reflect with the Core Comptencies, specifically "Positive Personal & Cultural Identity".
