Kids were asked to pick their most insightful thought, sight, and wonder and bring them along to the field trip to hopefully extend their thinking, get answers, or discover new findings while on the trip with their adult chaperone and peers. Kids got to review their new learnings with their peers once back in class after the field trip.
I would like to try to switch class See Think Wonder charts among the Literacy classes to have deep level discussions on how kids in other classes show their thinking. Are there patterns? Do other kids have the same ideas we do? What are they doing well that we could try? What are we doing well that they could try?
