Le cycle d’investigation: Les objets témoins du passé

Pour “entrer dans le sujet” de cette nouvelle unité, les élèves de CM1 (4th grade) ont joué les archéologues et déterrer des objets. Ils les ont nettoyés à l’aide de pinceaux, observer à la loupe, dessiner, puis ils ont fait des fiches décrivant ces objets. Ils sont arrivés à la conclusion que sur un site archéologique les objets les plus anciens sont enterrés le plus profondément et les objets récents se trouvent plus en surface.

Service Learning at ISB

Throughout our students’ time at ISB, they are asked to take action in various ways, both as part of the curriculum and through stand alone initiatives. In the curriculum, the community service program builds as students advance through the Primary Years Programme (PYP - PK 3's through 5th Grade) and Middle Years Programme (MYP - 6th Grade-8th Grade), culminating in the MYP Community Service Project each student completes in 8th Grade. In addition to the classroom and individual service projects, ISB also organizes two school-wide service days, Local Day of Service and Global Service Day, to align with our goal of ensuring that our students become locally- and globally-minded.
