The first week I worked with our 5th grade students, I made a Google Slide presentation based on one by Pam Weiger, teacher librarian/IB coordinator at Allisonville Elementary School in Indianapolis, Indiana. Pam shared her PowerPoint at a recent IB PYP workshop.
We introduced our students to the United Nations’ Global Goals in order to help them brainstorm for issues and problems. Our students each have school issued Dell tablets so they worked individually through the presentation.

Action Focus: PYP Exhibition
The second week I worked with the students and we focused on the action component of the exhibition. We looked at the words invent, innovate and campaign, as these were the concepts from the video, The World’s Largest Lesson 2016. This video, according to the description on YouTube: ” invite(s) children to get involved in the Global Goals for Sustainable Development by inventing, innovating and campaigning.”
Student Response: Tweet or Question
After viewing the video the students could choose to add another question to our map or compose a Tweet to explain what the UN’s Global Goals are about.
I tweeted a sampling of the students’ works:
