Grade 4 students learned about Ainu culture as part of their Unit of Inquiry; Where We Are in Place and Time. The unit’s central idea was 'People continue to migrate for many reasons'. There were strong connections made with Ainu culture through the International Centre of Japanese Culture, a centre where students can explore and appreciate Japan’s rich and unique culture through music education, arts programs, special guest lectures, and live performances. Throughout the unit, collaboration occurred between the homeroom learning and the subjects of Dance, Visual Art, Music and Japanese which is reflective of the transdisciplinary approach to learning in the Primary Years Program. To share their learning with parents, students held a unit celebration on Tuesday 26th November, 2013 in the Tanner Auditorium. The unit celebration was a well-balanced presentation of song, dance, game demonstration, fabric design, and language translation, concluding with an open sharing session for parents to have discussions about their learnings. Thank you to all the YIS teachers in supporting the students' inquiries. This is the second part of a video recorded of the unit celebration.
