This week we have delved further into the world of culture and how it helps make us who we are. We conducted a temperature check of our learning by positioning ourselves in a lineĀ  according to how much we thought we knew about culture. Then we produced a colour, symbol and image that came to mind when we thought of culture. Next week we will use a see, think, wonder approach to generate questions to help the children inquire further into these concepts.

We also produced our interview questions. The following slide show shows how we generated the questions and then sorted them into the interview format that the children have brought home.
