Inquiry into the PYP- Day 2

The day began with forming the Essential Agreements and recap of the previous day. Mr. Heisler shared few points on the importance of inquiry. He made us ponder upon the importance of field trip and hands-on experience. Before going for a field trip, students must be aware of the purpose, tools for recording, also develop students' observation and a variety of activities need to be planned.

It was a different experience as this is our first workshop that we were taken on a field trip. Usually as teachers, we take the students out but today we were taken as students for a field trip to the Botanical garden to explore experience our learning through inquiry. It was a wonderful learning experience which ensured deeper understanding through inquiry. The reflection after we returned was enriching.

It was a good learning experience!
