Unbreaking The Central Idea

Grade 4 students are learning about exploration in this unit. For these six upcoming weeks, they will learn “Exploration leads to discovery and develops new understandings”.  To help them understand what they are going to learn, they break the central idea. First, they identified the important words from the central idea. They underlined the words exploration, discovery and understanding. Then they worked in a group to find the from a dictionary or internet. After that they created a simple poster to show their understanding. Last they taught the words to their friends.
