Systems & Interactions Logo

The thematic concept-based interdisciplinary unit developed to support IMYM8 (Grade 8) is entitled Systems and Interactions. Students achieve the knowledge and skills prescribed in selected outcomes of the grade 8 English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies curricula through the study of world wide water systems. This 6-8 week unit is structured around learning experiences focused on guiding questions related to systems and interactions and culminating in the development of students' own Investigation web site. Throughout the Systems and Interactions unit, information technology hardware and software have been integrated into the daily learning experiences of grade 8 students.
