In early childhood education, young learners possess an insatiable curiosity that fuels their desire to learn and explore the world around them. One beautiful avenue for nurturing their inquisitive minds is through the study of artifacts, the discovery of dinosaurs, and inventions. Our K2 students inquire about the discoveries that provide information about a changing world for their final unit of inquiry, Where we are in place and time.
Learning about different artifacts from all over the world sparked the K2 students’ curiosity and ignited their imaginations, leading them to make replicas of items they saw in pictures and virtual museums. Students drew connections, grasped the concept of change, and had varied perspectives on different cultures as we learned about historical artifacts, which increased their understanding of the world around them.
On June 1st, 2023, K2 students opened a museum gallery showcasing what they’d learned and discovered throughout their exploration of the unit Where We Are in Place and Time. It was a fantastic learning experience for our students to boldly share their knowledge with their parents, families, and our school community. The students also shared their favorite inventions and made a connection with their daily life to how inventions benefit us and made our life easy.
Through the display of their vibrant works and the exploration of artifacts, this exhibition celebrates diversity, promotes learning, and empowers students’ creativity. It serves as a reminder of the importance of nurturing young minds and embracing the artistic potential within each child.
