The exhibition is an end of the year group project that marks the end of our PYP years, this year’s theme was sharing the planet.
The theme Sharing the Planet was broken into smaller groups such as: Forests, Animals, Energy, Food and many more .
Each group consisted of 2-4 people and each person had a specific sub-topic that related to their group topic.
In our groups we had a certain amount of paper we could use and when we used a piece of paper we would lose a paper credit and we would have to do an act of green to regain it.
In our groups we went to the library and on the internet to find useful information that we applied to our work.
We had many internet and book sources which we wrote down in our bibliography
We also researched at home and then brought it to class
In our groups we each thought of a creative way to present our work.
For example: games, videos, poster boards and many more.
In our groups we worked on our presentation ideas and had them ready for exhibition day.
And remember to save the planet !!!
