Upper Primary: Astronomy Integrated Studies Unit 2018

Each trimester, PCS students across all grade levels embark on a shared unit of Integrated Study. The school studies a shared topic — this trimester, Astronomy — and each class finds its own theme within the topic to explore. The Integrated Unit brings together multiple disciplines in hands-on, project based learning in each class, and the shared topic amplifies learning across grade levels, as multi-age learners collaborate.

Upper Primary students created an interactive, multimedia, multi-sensory tour of the Universe. Below, watch UP astronomers guide Kindergarten visitors through the Universe: starting with the Big Bang, moving into the newly-formed Universe, then through the galaxies to our Solar System, and finally, into the center of the Sun.
