SIS on Building a Community

SIS on Building a Community1A, 1B, and 1C are working collaboratively to build communities in our classrooms!

Over the past several weeks, we have been exploring features of a community.   We brainstormed things that we need, like healthy food and shelter, and things that we want, like pets and electronic devices.  Then we listed the different parts of a community that would provide us those things.  We visited many parts of our community through various field trips, such as our trips to Sihai Park, the wet market, and Park ‘n’ Shop.

SIS on Building a CommunityNext, we used recycled materials to design and build  important features of a community.  Once our constructions were complete, we brought them together to create a community that provides for the needs and wants of its members.  Our fictitious communities have such important resources as schools, parks, transportation systems like ferries and trains,  hospitals, and houses.
