Today in our Justice inquiry, we talked about our needs and wants. We got into groups to work out what resources and we needed to live and what things we valued, but we were only allowed SIX different resources per group. Overall, we thought that a house, clean water, food, family, good health and democracy were most important to be able to live a worthwhile life. We think that today's task was really fun because it taught us about the essentials in life rather than what we want to be happy.   WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE SAID...?

Today we started a new topic of Inquiry. "Why Justice ?" is our new question for our topic inquiring into Social Justice. We used a graphic organiser called a Frayer-Concept Model  so our teacher could see what we already know about Justice. The graphic organiser had questions like, "What does acting justly mean?" and, " What are some non-examples of Justice?" When we finished our graphic organiser  we took sticky notes and wrote some of our answers for display. I think this will be a good topic because it will teach us about how lucky we are compared to some people in other countries and communities.

Please join us in exploring by adding ideas to our question,
What does justice mean to you?"
