I'm hoping that my team will host a number of interdisciplinary theme days with students this year. These days would give students a chance to dig in alone and/or with teammates to work on an interdisciplinary problem or project.
Some ideas for these theme days include the following:
- Global Cardboard Challenge
- Marble Maze Activity
- Dot Day
- Space Adaptation Project
- Field Studies to a play, nature preserve, museum, and historic walk.
- Field Day
- Global Change Makers Project
Do you host interdisciplinary theme days for your students? If so, how often do these days occur and how do you plan the days so that the learning is rich and deep? Do specialists, assistants, leaders, and family members help you out? I'm curious as to how we'll integrate these engaging Theme Days into our model next year.
