Grade 5 is an important year. Students transition from PYP to MYP and take part in the culminating project, exhibition. Throughout the year I try to show important events occurring around the world and help them understand global issues that they might find interesting. I also try to emphasize the importance of taking action and making a difference in the lives of others.
One way to take action is through awareness. Movember is a great chance to teach the students about a movement to raise awareness about men's health issues. We discussed the reason for Movember and why it is important to teach people about cancer of all types.
Students get to share in the fun too by putting on mustaches. Take a look!
