ALL THE INSIGHTS ARE PRESENTED WITH AN INCLUSIVE, LABORATORY, ARGUMENTATIVE METHODOLOGY. ALL THE INSIGHTS ARE STRUCTURED AS A LEARNING UNIT (UDA) AND DESIGNED IN TERMS OF OBJECTIVES, CONTENTS, METHODS, TOOLS, PRODUCT AND RESULT EVIDENCE, IN ITINERE VERIFICATIONS AND FINAL EVALUATIONS (TRAINING AND SUMMARY BY CRITERIA).

“TOGETHER FOR THE PLANET”, transversal and multidisciplinary activities conducted by the team of teachers of the IC RENDE COMMENDA – PRIMARY SCHOOL STANCATI – RENDE – TEAM CLASSES IIF AND IIH
GIULIA FALCONE ROSSELLA FERRARI ANNALISA SASSONE ROBERTA ALESSIO.
The transversal subjects are: technology, art, science, Italian, geography, civic education. Scientific method: brainstorming, hypothesis, argumentation, comparison, synthesis, guided exposure. Logic, geography, science, art, music, technology.
The transversal and multidisciplinary path was designed with an annual deadline.
Creative and diversified works that allowed the students to use techniques, materials, strategies and methodologies. Materials used: paper and cardboard, plastic, rubber, cork, wood, leaves, shells, natural elements.
The students were engaged through an inclusive and stimulating methodology.
The lessons took place in three ways:
in the classroom,
in DaD (that is a virtual laboratory class),
in Did (that is in the classroom while connected with students following lessons at home).
The methodological modality: laboratory, composition of creative works built with natural or recovery / recycling material, of listening, reading and guided and collective understanding of the many texts reworked by the team.
The use of technology and the technical / scientific apparatus have created an innovative setting and guaranteed the achieving of STEAM goals. It tried out the scientific method of making hypotheses, deriving predictions and carrying out empirical observations.
The pedagogical value
Cooperative learning and inclusion had a stimulating and motivating pedagogical effect. All the children were highly interested and constantly involved in the activities. The results of learning units (UdA) showed the achievement of autonomy and competences, the development of new resources, scientific /operational reformulations, arguments,graphic elaborations and expressive, artistic elaborations. The products realized: drawings, maps and diagrams, written summaries and contextualized exhibitions, storytelling, arguments, origami, graphic representations, posters, dioramas, artifacts, experiments and tests, manual jobs, invention of alternative and futuristic settings.
Why others should reply
The path presented is a good teaching practice: the results and evidence show that the pupils have participated and developed active knowledge that can be replicated through the appropriate presentation of the learning unit.
The planning of activities is carried out by the team in a preventive manner with respect to delivery. The Gant table is used; the structuring is by LEARNING UNIT (UDA).
