Grade 3 researches famous personalities through biography-writing

Some time ago, our IB PYP Grade 3 students inquired into the lives of famous personalities to develop their research skills. They also got to exercise their creativity with the opportunity to dress up as their chosen personality. We saw the mini-versions of Steve Jobs, Neil Armstrong, Albert Einstein, Malala Yousafzai, Anne Frank and others walking around campus that day. 

During the week, they learnt to gather information through reading and organised it using notes in a mind-map diagram. They focussed on discovering information such as early life, family background, major events in life, lifetime accomplishments and lasting impact on society. 

Students also learnt how to write the timeline of a person’s life and how it helps to understand a person better. Their presentations encompassed all of these aspects of their learning.
