Our new central idea is: Water is important to all living things.
The children have discussed what they know about water and what they think it means to "share the planet." We have just come to the connection that water is used by many living things and this is something that we need to share on our planet. To get the children tuned in, we started the unit with some good old water play! We also went on a water hunt and found water in all sorts of places around the school. The children are just at the stage where they have formed questions which will guide the direction that our inquiry will take. Here is what they are wondering:
