Looking to simply start some meaningful, productive conversations with your future scientists? These could be the "fire starters" you need! This is an assemblage of 75 general questions that can really spark some wonderful classroom discussions by capturing the interest of students. There are many questions that can serve as "essential questions" something administrators love to see posted during walk through observations, and quite the "hot topic" these days!
There are 3 main sections of questions that are designed to be used with middle and high school level students, although many can be used with much younger students!
Section #1 = Astronomy [35 questions] (2 parts; Earth based and deep space)
Section #2 = Weather [20 questions] (various meteorology based questions)
Section #3 = Geology [20 questions] (rocks/minerals, plate tectonics, fossils, etc.)
