TIS PYP Exhibition: Friday April 27

TIS fifth graders are already hard at work preparing for the IB Exhibition, the culminating event for PYP students. It is a special unit designed and executed by the students themselves. Children write lines of inquiry, gather data, conduct investigations, take action, and present this experience in a public forum. Their research topics are framed under the Transdisciplinary Theme Who We Are. The process, not the product, is the most important feature of the Exhibition. The Exhibition provides students with the opportunity to show their skills as independent learners.

This Exhibition is truly unique to our school because we connect it to the 5th grade Capstone academic trips abroad. Before students left, they designed questionnaires on their topic of interest to gather data in their host countries. Topics include health and well-being, education, family life, and religion. Not only do students conduct first-hand research, but they also take action by sharing about themselves with their host families and schools.

All community members are invited: Friday, April 27th - see upcoming ITKs for exact times and more details.
