Integrated Studies

“The world is a great book, of which those who never stir from home read only a page.” St. Augustine

OVERVIEW

Students continue to explore the world around them through Science, History and Geography to gain a greater understanding of all God’s people, and develop a sense of wonder and take responsibility for His creation. They learn to show respect for God’s creation and people. They identify and describe changes to the weather, changes in everyday materials and food. Students explore and describe the features God gave animals to survive in their habitats and the basic needs of living things. They investigate how light and sound can be produced. They begin to discover the history of people living in the past compared to the present and learn about the significant celebrations of different cultures. They identify how they are connected to their local area and where they belong in their community.   Students carry out investigations, pose questions and make predictions. They learn to make observations, draw diagrams, and create presentations about their learning to share with others in order to develop an understanding, knowledge and the skills through which they can develop a scientific view of the world and to nurture their natural curiosity about the world around them.
