In the past month, PYP4 students have started an interesting project within the Human Body Systems unit which emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary and creative learning. Their scientific projects not only explored the intricacies of the human body but also encouraged creative thinking and collaboration.
Creating a nervous system with clay is an example of teamwork, where students combine their ideas and efforts to create a complex model. The respiratory system project allowed them to express their creativity using balloons, straws, and collage paper, showing their ability to think outside the box. Ultimately, the digestive system challenged them to approach the subject from a creative, hands-on perspective, using cardboard, scalpels, hot glue, and markers.
Through these projects, students not only deepened their understanding of human biology but experienced how interdisciplinary and creative learning can help make complex subjects engaging and memorable.
