Diving Into Our PBL Water Unit!

This week we began our first official Project Based Learning Unit!  Over the next six weeks the class will be learning all about water.  We began by sharing water stories and creating a topic web about all the class knows about water.  We then came up with a list of questions that we would like answered during the unit.  Our essential question that we will be focusing on is: How does water quality effect living things?

An important part of PBL is field work.  We will be going on two field trips in November to learn more about our unit of study.  Our two field trips are:

  • Lake Norman State Park on November 5th
  • Blue Planet Water Environmental Center on November 13th

The class is excited about “diving” into our new water unit!
