Does exploration help us to change our perspective of the world?

Through exploring this fertile question students will develop critical thinking skills, communication skills, emotional intelligence as well as questioning and problem-solving skills.

Term 1 Sub Question: Should we care about the universe beyond how it affects us as humans?

Rationale:

    • The development of theories about Earth's place in the universe
    • Technology and the increase of powers of space observation
    • Technology and Space Exploration
    • Understand why the universe is important to life on earth

Term 2 Sub Question: How do we know what is real and if it’s true?

Rationale: 

  • For students to be able to understand what is truth and what is a lie
  • How to be able to evaluate evidence 
  • To use reliable sources for research
  • Not always side with the most popular opinion 
  • Not everyone has the same point of view
  • To understand that not everything is what it seems
