Big Question in IPC: How do we affect our world?

This week we will have our Entry Point about Our World and we will be exploring 2 habitats; the rain forest and the desert. 
We will also have our Knowledge Harvest in which we investigate what we already know about this Unit. 
Cooperation is very important for our learning so we have team-building activities with our new IPC-teams to get to know each other better.
