This is one of the tweet conversations we had on Digital Learning Day. The children created the ideas for questions to put out there in the Twitter-verse and we waited for replies. Classrooms are quite busy during the day and it takes real dedication to the activity in order to keep up with the conversations.
We also asked this question.
We compared class size with them too.
Questions are a big part of our learning now. Every day during Work Board, a small group will craft a question and write it on the easel with Mrs. Labrie. The children have little white boards and markers to practice writing the words themselves while they wait for their turn at the easel. At the end of the morning, the group shares the question they wrote.
I was unprepared for the depth of questions being asked and realize now that I need to reserve some time each day to research and answer these questions. Here is a sample from recent days.
- Why does the earth turn?
- Why does the moon change?
- When is Valentines Day?
- Why are there so many kids in our school?
- Why does the moon change each nigh?
- Why does day turn into night?
- Why does ice cream melt?
- What is paper made of?
