Kindergarten teachers and students spent a great deal of time in December working through a Project Based Learning unit to answer the question How can we help newcomers feel welcome in our school and in our community? During the research portion of the PBL, students learned through teacher read-alouds, discussions, special visitors, and more. Their learning centered around different cultures, different parts of the world, and how it feels to be in a new place. Students then came up with ideas of what they could do to make people feel welcome. See the photos below for some examples of the great ideas and creations the students generated. Our students are truly amazing, and this is a great example of how some of our youngest learners can teach others, and in this case, remind us all of the importance of making sure everyone feels welcome and included.
