    Hi Chrissie. In primary schools the inquiry activities are usually cross curriculum in nature, though occaisionally units may target just one curiculum area.

    When working with high schools most inquiry units are pinned to one particular subject area. but again this is not a steadfast rule. Some high schools I have worked with have been attempting inquiry units that cross two subject areas especially with year 9 and 10 students. It works, but there are often fairly complex infrastructural issues to work through with timetabling etc. For students in years 11 and above most inquiry units have targetted specific subject areas as convert existing NCEA units to worked through under an inquiry based approach.
