WONDERS Research and Inquiry Projects *Smart Start and Unit 1*
On Day 5 under Integrate Ideas is a section called Research and Inquiry. Each week the project varies (a poster, a display, a puppet, a foldable, etc.) I wanted something that was consistent each week that could be displayed in the room and made into a book for the end of the year. I created these R&I projects for Day 5 of each week as a culmination of the information learned from the selections during the week. Each week there are 2 options. Option 1 is a simple no prep option when you are pressed for time. Students illustrate and write a response to the essential question. Option 2 requires some prep but is a fun crafty way to display information about your topic.
*Essential Question posters for each week
*Directions for each week with the essential question, discussion ideas, sentence frames, and template examples including a student sample
*Templates for weekly R&I Projects
*Student R&I Checklist
*Student Cover for R&I Project Book
*Make a Wonders Wall Bulletin Board or Wonders Research and Inquiry Board that can stay up all year. Each week you will be adding student projects to the board using a 2 prong fastener. When it's time for Open House, add the cover and you have a book of Research and Inquiry projects from the year!
*Print templates on letter size cardstock or 9x12 construction paper. This makes it more durable for artwork and for sharing time.
