Today we went on a trip! We love trips! We went to the botanical gardens in Pisa, as part of our unit of inquiry “Life Cycles”.
And it was a beautiful day… we got to observe some life cycles and life processes…. but the intriguing thing was the independent, and collaborative way of working. The students in my class are between 8 and 10 years old now, and some of them are quite protected and even “spoiled”. A lot of work has to be done on being independent. It was nice to see them follow the ancient tree trail in their groups and to observe them and their orientation skills. It was a beautiful day, but now I’m tired!
