Who We Are: Circle of Friends
Central Idea: We can be friends.
An inquiry into
- the giving and receiving of friendship
- the expectations in friendships.
To find out what the children's ideas are regarding friendship, we gathered as a class. The children were introduced to Olga the Hobbit who has no idea what friendship is. Olga lives on the IB Board. I am certain your children would love to introduce you to Olga.
The children were asked to tell Olga some activities friends do together. Their responses: reading a book, do nothing together, play, jump, hold hands, skateboard, have dinner together.
The children told Olga that friends are friendly, nice, polite and you have to ask them to play together.
Over the next seven weeks we will explore friendship!!
