Units of Inquiry and the PYP Journey

A unit of inquiry is a 6-8 week in-depth exploration of a concept.  Students inquire into the concept through an overarching central idea and are guided through the unit by three, student-driven lines of inquiry. Each classroom will have six units of inquiry per year.  While exploring the unit’s central idea, students learn specific elements through the different subjects and form their own connections between what they are learning and how it relates to the world around them. Rather than learning topics, we see our units through a conceptual lens to give us a broader understanding. Inquiry-based learning, focusing on our Approaches to Learning Skills, developing our Learner Profile Attributes and allowing students to be agents of their own learning lies at the heart of all our learning in all subjects.
