This week, we have started our new unit of inquiry. First of all, we have chosen our books and discussed about what topics we are going to search about. After that, we decided to learn more about how plastic and wood are used for the benefits of society and what processes are needed to make these materials useful for various purposes. In addition to our inquiry, we have done our ISA external assessment test. It was a good opportunity to reflect on our progress in math and language literacy.
