Mark Church, International School of Amsterdam, grade 6

Students in Mark Church's social studies class have been exploring early human beginnings. After discussing the big challenges and puzzles around this topic, students came up with a Headline that captures the heart of what the search for early human origins is all about. Examples of students' Headlines include: Why Do Mysteries Begin and How Do They End?; Is Evidence Enough?; Who We Really Are. Later in their study students revisited and revised their headlines to show how their thinking evolved.
