Developing Global Thinkers An IB PYP Inquiry into Flags of the World

Developing Global Thinkers An IB PYP Inquiry into Flags of the World

Global Thinkers are internationally minded. They are knowledgeable about the world that they live in. They ask questions about the world. They are knowledgeable about different cultures and their traditions.. They are open-minded to the differences in our world. This inquiry based activity was designed for 3rd-6th grades to learn about the world through their flags, using the IB PYP Learner Profile and Key Concepts as the focus of thinking. USA &UK spelling. The activity takes the form of a Global Passport. The pages can be mixed and matched and created into a booklet. Easy to differentiate. As the flags are introduced to the children, they will complete the pages of the passport, developing their research skills and knowledge of the countries in question. This can be completed over the course of the school year as flags are introduced, as a collaborative group/partner activity within another unit of inquiry, independent homework assignment or a geography and mapping activity. The options are endless. Included: 10 mix and match, print and go pages Front and back cover for the Global Passport Log for recording countries explored. Certificate of completion for Global Thinkers A whole class activity for international mindedness Selection of 36 world flags to use as reference slides or for cutting and gluing into the passport. Teacher instructions and student’s examples. You can find many more inquiry based ideas and resources on my blog and in my store. Enjoy! Susan Powers www.PYPteachingtools.com

Draw arrows as to where what continent is each country  in (continent and country identification)

Draw arrows as to where what continent is each country in (continent and country identification)

Worksheet with several countries listed, the task is to draw arrows from each country as to what continent they are on, atlases can be very useful and help develop map reading/ atlas skills. Extension to the task is to work out whether if you were visiting the country if you were to drive/take a plane/ or a boat there, getting the children to think about travel, would you drive to Australia for example? This worksheet can be used as a base and edited as to how you like. I used this after the easter holidays are the countries listed were places the class teddies had visited over the holidays.

It looks at numerous factors that contribute to population and uses the case study of Nigeria (both rural and urban) to explore these themes. A terrific (and terrifying!) lesson,
