Our unit of inquiry for How We Organize Ourselves is School Days.  Our central idea is that schools are organized to help us learn together.  We will investigate the purpose of schools, routines/rules/materials, and how the community of learners functions.  In this unit, we will visit another classroom at Whittier to see similarities and differences within our own school   We will also learn about different schools throughout the world.  We will show creativity by designing our own schools.  The attitudes and profiles we will focus on are caring, appreciation, respect and commitment.
