PYP Exhibition Opened

In the last two months, our Grade 5 students have worked with a great deal of enthusiasm on their PYP-Exhibition. The Exhibition represents a significant event in the life of a PYP student, combining the essential elements of the PYP and sharing them with the whole community. This year, our PYP-Exhibition, within the unit “Sharing the Planet”, focused on supporting the UN Global Goals For Sustainable Development. Students had to identify and select an issue connected to a global goal for which they wanted to advocate. They formulated questions to drive their inquiry and help them deepen their understanding. Their actual research involved a lot of reading, as well as developing surveys and conducting interviews. Once students had researched widely about their issue, they took action in order to make a positive difference in the world. For example, Malia and Nandita were collecting school materials for “Two Wings School” in Tanzania, Kailua and Miles created stickers, pins and bookmarks for our “DIS Pride Week”, and Olivia and Paula made a movie about how social media can influence a person’s personality. In three assemblies our fifth graders shared their exhibition experience with the PYP community, followed up by a question and answer session via google meet. The students were also presenting their learning journey in a virtual museum (only for DIS community members). We are so proud of the Grade 5 students and their work in this year's PYP exhibition.
