As the new academic year begins, Upper Primary students started an interesting project-based learning (PBL) unit. The theme is "Learning through Gardening". Mary Dong (Year 6), from Upper Primary, introduces us to the subject:
Upper Primary has been learning about gardens in our PBL unit.
At first we were looking for a main theme. Everyone had a good idea. Finally, we chose what we would grow. You may think this is an easy thing but we needed to make sure the plant would grow in this season. It involved a lot of research.
We also worked on some small projects. There were three that we did and we demonstrated them to Lower Primary and Early Childhood Education students.
Now we are continuing to work on the main project again. Some of the seeds we ordered arrived. We researched how to plant them and we wrote the instructions down on our computer.
Let’s wait until the plants grow up!
