5W students’ Central Ideas for our 2017 HWOO Exhibition

5W students thought about how they could write a ‘central idea’ for our How We Organise Ourselves Exhibition. We were inspired today by a presentation from d’Arcy Lunn who has set up the organisation ‘Teaspoons of Change.’

We also thought about incorporating the following KEY words and big ideas:

issues/problems
global/local
action/service (particularly local action / small changes)
building community
change

You can look at all of our ideas HERE.

5W students – please add your central idea in the comment box below.

Thank you
Mr Weekes

  1. I thought about all of the keywords that we identified and discussed in class and decided on the following Central Idea for our Exhibition unit of inquiry:

    Sharing our knowledge of world problems so we can make a difference.

  2. I thought of all the important words that connect to our central idea and then thought of some keywords.

    This is what I think the exhibition is about and what we should learn from it.

    Learning about doing service and taking action to make the world a better and more happy place.

  3. I thought hard about what we learned so far, and learned by listening to d’Arcy Lunn talk, and decided on the following Central Idea for our Exhibition unit of inquiry:

    “Pass on the knowledge to support the community”

    “That by taking actions you help locally and globally”

    “An exhibition is about spreading the awareness an issue while doing something about it.”

    “Exhibition is about learning about a problem in the world and aware people of the cause and try to help.”

  13. First I saw all the other ones, then thought of the main idea and what I thought when I hear the word exhibition and finally build up.

    This is my central idea:
    “”The exhibition is about helping people who need it and making the world a better place.””
