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 ‘who we are’ unit on body systems.

Inquiring into body systems helps students reflect on how our organs and systems work together to keep us healthy and strong. This helps them make responsible choices that lead to physical and mental wellbeing. Created by Rachel Poff, this idea bank is sure to become your go-to partner in planning a unit on body systems.
