3rd grade Muisca Jan 2014

by Grace Martinez, 3rd Grade Coordinator

As part of our unit of inquiry Different Worlds Same Needs”, third grade students visited an indigenous reserve located in Chia, Cundinamarca. They had the opportunity to share their knowledge and experience with The Muisca Community and The Afro–Colombian Community. They inquired about how to develop identity and how to build  identity from a multiracial perspective. They also explored on how people come together based on common needs and how people people meet their basic needs in a variety of contexts. They were highly active, engaged, open–minded and reflective.
