- What are these objects?
- What are they used for?
- What do we already know about these items?
The students worked in two groups to observe the items, and document their thinking and questions using the thinking routine ‘Chalk Talk’. During this activity they had to write without speaking to each other.
Making Thinking Visible through the routine ‘Chalk Talk‘.
Then, the students discussed and documented what they know about the concept of ‘CHANGE’.
Next, the students were given a set of pictures.
They had to walk around and find the matching object, one from the past and one that was from the present. They talked to each other, sharing what they know about the pictures. They paired up with the group that had the matching picture from the past or present.
They documented their ideas and observations on paper.
The students have begun to dive into the new unit under the Transdisciplinary Theme ‘Where We Are in Place and Time’. Watch this space to see what we uncover through our inquiry into the concepts ‘change, connection, systems and transformation‘.
