Sharing the Planet
Many factors might lead species toward endangerment or extinction
Lines of Inquiry
- Factors leading to endangerment
- From endangerment to extinct
- Our responsibility toward endangered species
During our unit of inquiry ‘Saving the animals’, our students learned about extinct and endangered species. Through this unit, students learned their responsibilities towards endangered animals as well as how to help them. Students chose to raise awareness and create posters that show ways of protecting endangered species as part of their action plan. Here are some examples of their posters. Congratulations G1 for helping us know about animals that are close to extinction.

Lines of Inquiry
Forms of Energy
The storage and transformation of energy
Conservation of energy
The Grade 5 students applied their knowledge of the lines of inquiry from their current unit of inquiry to show new ways to use, store and save energy by building a model of their choice using recycled materials. They demonstrated their conceptual understanding of sustainability and energy, and used their thinking and research skills to create the models seen below. The students presented their learning through videos and live presentations to their peers.
Congratulations to our Grade 10 students! They have been working very hard over the last seven months on their Personal Project journey. Our students have created an amazing range of products, from building 3D objects, creating recipe books, and visual art works.
The Personal Project is an important part of the MYP and for preparation for the DP. Students have to bring together skills they have learned in order to be successful. They are called upon to use subject specific skills as well as their ATL skills – in particular time management which is also an essential for doing well in the DP. We have been pleased by how well students have balanced all their commitments this year, despite the pandemic. Students are continuing to work hard and explore their interests which is evident in their PP exhibition Microsoft Sways.
Although we cannot gather in person, we hope you enjoy this virtual gallery showcasing the Grade 10 students creativity, hard work, and growth as MYP scholars.
