Guiding Questions

How are we alike? How are we different? How do we work together? Over time things change.

Big Ideas


Invite children to learn about the story of their family and the families of their classmates. Encourage children to share the stories and traditions that are unique to their family and learn about their friends.

Community and Relationships

Develop a sense of belonging and community among children in the classroom community and other groups to which they may belong. Explore the shared responsibilities, relationships and various roles of members in a community.
