Celebrations

Our unit of inquiry for Who We Are is Celebrations.  The central idea is that celebrations occur across cultures to signify beliefs and values.  We will investigate reasons events are celebrated and common components of celebrations around the world.  We will compare and contrast the different ways we celebrate.  Students will be able to plan a celebration for the 100th day of school to synthesize their learning.  The attitudes and profiles we will emphasize are enthusiasm, tolerance, creativity and openmindedness.
