Have you struggled with those minute between when the first and last buses are called? Some days it can stretch as long as twenty minutes. Those twenty minutes can be the longest of the day.
I saw one of the most amazing ideas yesterday while at Sappington. Jillian Skouby created a Wonder Wall where students used Post-It Notes to write down things they wondered about.
What else does this do?
- Helps teach the students what research could look like.
- It guides them to understand how to create a researchable question.
- Gets them interested in related ideas. The orange juice question lead the kids to start looking into chemical changes.
- Helps the kids start to question the world around them and ask why.
