Year 8 have been working on a unit about customs and traditions around the world.
|Final Preparations on the Exhibition|
The unit stems from the novel Ties That Bind, Ties That Break by Lensey Namioka, set in China in 1911, about a young girl who fights the tradition of foot binding.
The unit has covered essential information literacy skills as learners explored strategies about how to search for information, as well as how to evaluate the information they found. They also explored how they best take notes, and how to use and reference the information they find.
Each group had to fill one display board and include:
- a title
- a clearly labelled map
- one piece of non-fiction, informative writing per person with references
- at least six images with caption and references
- one relevant physical object
The exhibition has been set up in the reception and will remain for a fews weeks to be shared with the school community.
