Climate Change Logo

The thematic concept-based interdisciplinary unit developed to support IMYM5 (Grade 5) is entitled Climate Change. Students achieve the knowledge and skills from selected outcomes of the grade 5 English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies curricula through the study of climate change, how it affects us, and what we can do about it. This 6-8 week unit is structured around learning experiences associated with six sections - Ongoing Learning Experiences (OLE), Information and Communication Technology learning experiences (ICT) and Modules 1 to 4. Learning experiences range from students collecting, analyzing and displaying information collected on climate change to hosting a Climate Change Awareness Week. Throughout the Climate Change unit, information technology hardware and software have been integrated into the daily learning experiences of grade 5 students.
