  • Adaptability (2017-18)

The purpose of this study was to investigate whether inquiry-based learning fostered curiosity in Grade 5 boys. For this action research project, 29 boys were exposed to a six-week inquiry unit which was guided by the essential question, Can rooftop gardens help feed our cities’ homeless? Their inquiry involved research into the historical and political background of our city as well as biological and sustainable aspects of gardening.
