It is the learning method advocated by the Bilingual Department of WXFLS to initiate real learning and exploration in real situations, to make students' personal experiences connect with local and global challenges, so as to train students to become thinkers, communicators and learners with critical spirit, innovative spirit and international feelings.
This outbreak concerns the public health situation in China and even the world.Therefore, in combination with the real situation, each grade of he Bilingual Department of WXFLS developed an interdisciplinary and interesting exploration course.
Children learned about novel coronavirus, how to spread virus and how to prevent it by asking their parents, reading books and looking up materials. The students fully understood that washing their hands frequently and wearing masks can protect themselves.Teachers also guided the children to do practical things at home.
Through the novel coronavirus, the third grade students began to learn about "what are the historical viruses" and to look for similar symptoms that these viruses might have.
The students also conducted a "bread experiment" in which children with different hand cleanliness were asked to touch a slice of bread cut from the same loaf of bread on the same day.Then they sealed the bread in a separate plastic bag to see what would happen after a month. This little experiment made the students realize the importance of washing their hands.
The fourth grade students through the inquiry learning, more clear their responsibility during the outbreak, the children think they should study hard, and made the relevant rules during the outbreak in school.
At the same time, teachers integrate the math curriculum into the inquiry curriculum, providing children with a way to connect knowledge with the real world through integration, and children increase perception, cognition, ability and interest by solving real problems.
At the end of this round of inquiry learning, the fourth graders used a word to reflect on this stage of learning.
We hope that every child can become a positive reflector and they can think carefully about their own learning and experience, and can objectively evaluate and understand their own strengths and limitations, which is conducive to their own learning and personal development.
Fifth graders started with the similarities and differences between viruses and bacteria to explore the impact of viruses and bacteria on human beings.The children brought their own vaccination books from home and held a debate on the pros and cons of vaccination.At the same time, in order to meet the junior back to school, they also carefully produced epidemic prevention during the popular science manual.
Around the current affairs of the extension of the knowledge of the content, carefully designed topics of inquiry, lively and interesting classroom activities...The inquiry course of the Bilingual Department of WXFLS gathers the wisdom of teachers and students. We believe it can also make you eager to have a try.The end of one stage means the beginning of the next stage. Let's look forward to the next wonderful journey.
