G5 Chinese Exhibition —— The Silk Road

Recently, HQIS successfully held the annual 
Grade 5 IB-PYP Exhibition. The theme of the exhibition was the unit “How we express ourselves”. This exhibition is the perfect chance for our students to display the thinking, social, communication, self-management and research skills that they have learned to conduct authentic investigations in front of the whole HQIS community.

Students spent two months producing a Chinese graduation exhibition with the theme of The Silk Road. The exhibition is divided into three parts The Silk Road On land, The Maritime Silk Road, and The One Belt And One Road.
