Grade 5/6 send a message of support to Wuhan, China
In Grade 5/6, students created an inspirational video for the people of Wuhan, China, whose lives have been severely affected by the coronavirus. Students showed great empathy making this video by encouraging and supporting people in China. To connect this project with their current unit of inquiry on social media and digital citizenship, the class also used this opportunity to ‘experiment’ the power of social media, posting the video on Weibo, Youtube and Wechat. Students were very excited and surprised that they got so many views in one day! This was also a great opportunity for students to understand what being a global and digital citizen feels like, cultivating international mindedness.
