Grade 5 students at the International School of Busan (ISB) successfully presented their IB Primary Years Programme exhibition on April 25 and 26.
ISB offers the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP) for our students in preschool through grade 5. In their final year of the PYP, students undertake a PYP Exhibition which involves students conducting an in-depth inquiry into real life issues, problems or opportunities.
Students apply their knowledge, skills, conceptual understandings and learner profile attributes throughout the process. This year grade 5 students at ISB chose to explore issues such as the environment, technology, food, animals, equality, health, and happiness.
Grade 5 students presented their work in the ES Hall to teachers, parents, and fellow students. The students were well prepared and shared the knowledge, skills, attitudes and deep understandings that they had developed.
ISB is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Continuum school, offering IB programmes for all students from pre-kindergarten to the diploma programme in Grade 11 and 12. The IB Diploma Programme is recognized by Universities around the world and many Diploma Programme students continue their studies at American Ivy League Universities and other prestigious Institutions around the world.
The IB programmes encourage students to learn how to learn by teaching them to ask challenging questions, think critically, and develop research skills. Well-rounded students are developed through integral creativity and activity components of the curriculum. Global citizenship and environmental stewardship are explored through service learning projects, connecting teaching in the classroom with action in the community.
