PYP Inquiry Boxes Contents

 

PYP Springboard inquiry boxes can be used flexibly by teachers and students of the International Baccalaureate® Primary Years Programme, supporting a school's inquiry programme and the teaching of the units of inquiry.

 

This series has been designed to complement IB materials, through providing a selection of appropriate books, and a Teacher’s Manual that guides teachers through developing and reviewing their unit, with sections covering all major aspects of its planning.

The PYP is a complex and comprehensive programme. This has the potential to provide a rich and balanced education. However it places much more demands on teachers than a more 'off the peg' curriculum.

REMBRANDT AND THE BOY WHO DREW DOGS
Author Molly Blaisdell transports young readers to the city of Amsterdam in the 1650s. It is a time when world-renowned artist Rembrandt van Rijn is at the height of fame among his patrons―and when his young son Titus longs to imitate his father and become a great painter. At first, Rembrandt rebuffs Titus’s attempts at drawing, telling the boy he is too young to learn art. But gradually, the master painter is won over by his son’s enthusiasm and persistence, and he begins to teach a very happy Titus the basic techniques of drawing from life. Here is a warmhearted story for children, with illustrations that capture the atmosphere of seventeenth-century Holland and suggest some of the genius that radiates from Rembrandt’s own magnificent paintings.
