Classroom Displays KEY CONCEPTS - Posters (*IB PYP)
Suitable for primary / elementary school classrooms.
This set of posters define each of the 8 Key Concepts of the IB PYP curriculum
Concepts are over-arching mental constructs that students need, in order to make sense of the content we teach. Conceptual understanding enables students to apply facts and skills to the world around them.
By starting with concepts, we create a curriculum that’s worthy of our students’ time and effort. The concepts that drive the PYP are:
timeless (factual examples change, but not the core understanding),
universal (so students can apply understandings across cultures, situations and disciplines) and
abstract (so students engage in higher order thinking to grapple with central ideas).
