In the IB Primary years program, 'Transdisciplinary skills' play a critical role in planning, teaching, and assessing student learning. However, they are not often explicitly taught and when they are, it is usually in an isolated manner. For example, one might teach a mini lesson about 'gather data' as part of a unit of inquiry.
To reinforce the transdisciplinary nature of the skills and provide more opportunities for students to reflect and discuss them together, I designed a slightly gamified system.
Each skill is posted on the wall with an eight by one square grid underneath.
