Inspire and give voice to your children's exploration of questions like: What do I want to know? What am I curious about? How can I start exploring what I want to know?
This document is not a traditional "lesson plan," but rather directions on starting and using a question wall effectively. It extends over time and integrates into other subjects or areas of interest. It is a great one to share with parents as an activity they can do at home to start engaging children in asking higher-level questions. This is an easy activity to share in a monthly newsletter or at a parent-teacher conference to integrate parents into the learning process.
