Students reflected upon the exploration they had in the previous session on five different stations. They discussed within the classroom the main idea behind this exploration. After further scaffolding, they could conclude that they had explored the aspects of the transdisciplinary theme ‘Where we are in place and time’ through this activity in order to understand it better. Later, in their groups, students discussed the history of their family values, traditions, beliefs etc. They could observe that these things vary from family to family.
