Our Year 1C students have been very busy learning about trees, seeds, and how these grow in our surroundings.  During the inquiry time, they have created a life-size tree within the classroom, and small trees using clay and wire. They investigated how seed pods burst open with different forms of heat. We created bugs using the seed pods.  Some students decided to create and build a squirrel nest, bird’s nest, and treehouse for the classroom tree.  The inquiry is now moving into the recycling of seeds from our food.

The AVID strategies that the students use during this inquiry were inquiry and collaboration.  These skills are skills that our students will use throughout their school life.

The Reggio Emilia approach we use in our early years of education is innovative and inspiring.

Well done Year 1C on this very inspiring project.
