Inquiry Topics

Topics, topics, topics…

Exhibition TopicsBefore heading off to Canberra for our excursion into government, it is time to decide on topics and organise our groups so that we can start planning and thinking about our topic. We revisited our list of real issues that we identified as fitting under the theme of sharing the planet and being relevant locally and globally. From here we chose an issue (topic) that we were passionate about and then found others who were also passionate about the same issue (topic). There was a good spread of topics and groups with some minor tweaking here and there to ensure that everyone was in a group as they needed to demonstrate social skills throughout the inquiry.

The issues that we chose as a class ended up being homelessness, rubbish, bullying, racism, shark finning, asylum seekers, over-population, social networking, coral bleaching, and sweatshop production.
