Certain units of inquiry are ubiquitous across school POIs. These units, tried and tested, have deep connections to the transdisciplinary theme and are relevant across cultures and contexts. At Toddle, we believe in the power of sharing ideas and best practices. Join us as we deep dive into the units we all know and love and explore strategies for effectively thinking about and planning these units.
In this Idea Bank, we will explore a Where We Are in Place and Time- Civilizations unit.
Civilization can be linked with the IB mission statement and its focus on international mindedness. A focus on ancient civilization helps students make connections to the past, understand the economic and political commonalities and differences among cultures, thereby building a global perspective. Created by Maggie Hos-McGrane, this idea bank is sure to become your go-to partner in planning a unit on civilizations.
