Tic Tac Toe Inquiry Based Activities The Holiday Bundle

Tic Tac Toe Inquiry Based Activities The Holiday Bundle

Homework suddenly becomes FUN and meaningful! Double whammy! Be the coolest teacher in the school with these engaging I.B P.Y.P. inquiry based tasks focusing on holidays & celebrations throughout the year. This EASY print and go packet contains a themed homework sheet with 9 trans-disciplinary activities. Thus, these can be used for 3rd grade up to 5th grade. The children love to independently select their own 3 tasks, horizontally, vertically or diagonally, just like Knots and Crosses. The activities focus on the Key Concepts, Learner Profile and the I.B. Attitudes, requiring the children to show their thinking and explain their solutions. Every one of the trans disciplinary skills is used within these activities as the children get to independently select their homework, research it and communicate their findings in fun, engaging and very creative ways. Included: New Year Valentines Day St. Patrick Day Earth Day Easter Summer Celebrate Our Country Back to School Thanksgiving Halloween Christmas Winter I hope you find this resource useful. There are other Tic Tac Toe packets available in my store, covering math themes as well as social studies. Please take a look at the many other resources that I have in my store and on my blog, all aligned with the C.C.S.S and the I.B Primary Years Programme. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.pypteachingtools.com
