Last week we celebrated World Peace Day. As part of our unit of inquiry into conflict, we have spread our wings to look at people who have helped the world become a better place.
5W students have looked at the Nobel Peace Prize winners and have chosen one to write a short biography on. We used:
to research facts and interesting details about the person we chose. We focussed on seeing if we could answer these questions:
What makes this person special or interesting?
What kind of effect did he or she have on the world? other people?
What are the adjectives you would most use to describe the person?
What examples from their life illustrate those qualities?
What events shaped or changed this person’s life?
Did he or she overcome obstacles? Take risks? Get lucky?
Would the world be better or worse if this person hadn’t lived? HOW and WHY?
5W students edited biographies will be available in the comment boxes below from today.
