Integrated Learning Task – Survival Island

The Grade 4s were divided into groups for a Project Based Learning Task.  They were given clues to find various items on the playground using the eight cardinal points.  Once all the items were found, they had to decide and motivate as a group which five they wanted to keep to survive on their island.  One of the tasks they completed was tallying the bird life on the island.  We have found that putting children into groups of just boys or just girls works far better than mixed groups.  We also tend to put no more than four children per group.  This enables all of them to participate.  A lesson on leadership was done prior to this task and they understood what good leadership is all about.  A leader was elected in each group by the children themselves.
