How can you help at home?
As you are driving/riding the bus- have a discussion with your child about the changes in the scenery.
Discuss trips you have taken as a family and where the houses/buildings are located- Ex: Were they right on the beach or away from the water? Were the buildings on the side of the mountain or at the bottom of the mountain?

Encourage them at home to be reflective by:
-Discussing how their ideas of exploration has changed over the course of the unit.
- Discuss which IB learner profile your child utilized the most during the new unit?
-Encourage your child to think about what they have learned so far this year—how are these units connected? What have you learned about the world around you?

Encourage them at home to be open-minded by: -
Discussing how the exploration of new land might change your perspective -Discuss how people would work together, trust others, and/or take someone else’s advice -Ask your child to think of ways they can listen and learn from others. Being open minded embodies the ability to do this!

Encourage them at home to be knowledgeable by:
Discussing land-forms with you and where they are located (I.e. Valleys are located in between mountains) -Discussing Lewis, Clark, and Sacagawea - Describe the Corps of Discovery and the difficulties of the journey they experienced.
