Unpacking the word “Valuable”

We are starting a new unit about people’s skills and values.

Our central idea is: People’s skills and knowledge can be used to produce something of value.

We are going to inquire into:

  1. How value is determined.
  2. The outcome of our choices.
  3. How people contribute their skills and knowledge.

As an introduction, we brought in things that were valuable to us. We also talked about the different perspectives of value.


We learned a new math game that looked at repeated addition and equal groupings (hint hint– multiplication!) As your child how to play this game.
