Unpacking the Challenges Grade 5 Students Face in Being Physical Active?
To set the tone for this unit, we used a powerful provocation that I wrote about in blog post #2. It was an excellent provocation that got the students tuned in to the big ideas of 'taking action' and 'identifying challenges'.
In taking it one step further, we revisited the provocation from the first class. We shared our big takeaways and what resonated the most in regards to the Julius Yego Story. This took a couple of minutes, then I had the students think about their own lives and identify challenges that they faced that were similar to Julius Yego. Using yellow sticky circles, the students identified which challenges that they had in common with Julius. They wrote their name on the yellow circles as well, so I can follow up individually with them (see photo below).
In the visual below, you can see what this visual looked like.
Please see the 'Solutions Grid' below. As this grid fills up with ideas, I will do another blog post to share our learning. How might you use the solutions grid in your program or your classes? Would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for reading.
