Grade 4 - Week 5
It has been a very brief week - but packed with activities linked to our next line of inquiry: 'Success, challenge and failure strengthen our personal identity'. The children have begun to explore their own mindsets and reflect on how they view the themes of success, failure and challenge. They then decided to find out the mindset of other children in the school by designing and then conducting a survey based on attitudes towards these three themes.
The children came up with 10 survey questions and then interviewed Grades 1 - 6 to find their responses to the questionnaire. Children then used the skills they have been learning about in mathematics to represent the data collected in graph form.
We will continue our inquiry by investigating the lives of well-known successful people who have overcome obstacles and challenges in order to succeed in their goals.
