Grade 3 students are currently studying their unit of inquiry How We Express Ourselves. The inquiry theme is Mass media influences us in a variety of ways (マス・メディアは様々な手段をもってして我々に影響を与える。)
Students have been investigating the ways in which advertisers influence consumers to buy their products. Students have also been investigating the ways in which not all products are actually good for the consumer. Students created their own ads, and then presented them to the class, explaining why and how they made the ad in the way they did.
