Inquiry Units of Learning


At Karingal Primary School, we focus on Inquiry Learning for our themed topics.

Inquiry Learning is NOT about memorizing facts.


Inquiry Learning is about forming questions and finding appropriate resolutions to questions and ideas.


This engages students in active learning.
