Through this unit, students think about and reflect on how they can make changes in themselves, in their local community, and globally. The unit begins by asking students to identify who they are as a person and what makes them who they are. From this self-analysis, the unit moves on to examine how one person can affect the story of another person’s life, and then how that story can have an impact on a group, the community, and the world.

We were looking for a cross-curricular way to address probability content in Grade 4 Mathematics and content from Applied Design 4, which is new to the curriculum. We came up with the idea of making a game of chance, because we felt that the process of creating a game would reinforce new concepts in math and applied design by giving students an opportunity to apply these concepts in practice.

In this unit, students will identify their personal attributes and use this information to set personal goals. They will experience activities that require them to work both alone and with others to be successful. Through working with others, they will also be able to identify attributes of other people and how these influence their own learning. They will learn to set personal goals and work toward them using an action plan. They will also make connections to careers and learn about the attributes needed for success in certain careers.
