“What if?” was the question we used as provocation for the last and final line of inquiry of this unit which is “Our responsibility towards living creatures.”
To trigger the curiosity of our inquirer about their responsibility towards living creatures, focusing on insects, we inquired first about their importance to our planet. In the inquiry, they have found out that insects are important members of the food chain, and without them, the whole ecosystem will collapse and in the long run, will affect us. Some of their comments were: People can’t live without insects, the earth will be destroyed, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, etc., People and other animals will have no food, and Earth will be a sad place.
Also, we touched a little bit about pollination. We all thought that it would be too complicated for our inquirers to understand but what happened was otherwise; they were able to see and understand the concept clearly and were able to see its importance. Some of their comments were: Without insects, nobody will do pollination, we will not have fruits and vegetables anymore, we will get hungry and die, etc. To boost their understanding, they tried to experience the work of pollinators through activities using pompoms and glitters. They all had a wonderful time and enjoyed transferring pollen from one flower to another.
The highlight of this week was our SPORTS FESTIVAL DAY! We are all delighted to be graced with the presence of our family and friends. Our hard work, especially of our little explorers paid off when we saw everybody cheering for us, smiling at the cuteness of our students and being in awe as they watched our routines and performances. We can’t thank you enough for sparing time for this event; it means so much to us and our little ones. One day, they will reflect on this day and remember how much excitement and happiness they have caused their beloved parents.
This event was dedicated to our loving parents, friends, and family. We all love you and can’t thank you enough for your love and support!
See you in the next blog and another “What if?”
