As a way to model out HB inquiry book and to work on some of our key competencies as a class, we are engaging in a whole Home Base Inquiry on Autumn.

Begin with our big questions - we asked the home base what they wanted to know about Autumn.
Our question were:
Why do leaves Change colour?
What did children wear in Autumn 100 years ago?
Why does it get colder?

Learning Area:

or join the clothing group, learning about clothing from 100 years ago, dressing a paper person with those clothes and labelling it.
