The example that I am showing in this blog post comes from my grade 4 Adventure Challenge unit and the current unit of inquiry happening in the grade 4 classroom dealing with 'the nature of self, what it means to be human'. My teaching journey with this unit began with getting my hands on a copy of the 'Nature of Self' unit outline that you see below.
Throughout this unit, I will be making essential connections to the central idea and lines of inquiry. Although I have my own distinct student learning outcomes for the Adventure Challenge unit in PE, I believe there to be great pedagogical value in creating authentic links to the classroom unit of inquiry learning outcomes whenever possible. It just so happens that in the 'Nature of Self' unit has a number of learning outcomes that fit very nicely with my Adventure Challenge unit.
I will be blogging about this unit as it unfolds, sharing the learning that will be taking place. I will also be in close contact with the classroom teachers to see how things are going from their end. Would love to hear strategies that you put into practice in your Adventure Challenge units as I am always on the lookout for new ideas. Thanks for reading!
