Bamboo Garden Collaborates to Celebrate the Year of the Pig!
Our current unit of inquiry is an exploration into productivity - how people collaborate to achieve goals. Kindergarten and Grade 1 students learned firsthand the importance of working together as they made dumpling dough from scratch, mixing the ingredients and creating a traditional filling of red bean paste. One student reflected, “When we work together, it means we can finish more quickly!”
Through other learning experiences, students played games that allowed them to learn about collaboration and time management. For example, students worked in groups to construct towers using cups - without using their hands! They had to use string and rubber bands to lift the cups. Each group achieved the goal of constructing a tower while having fun!
