Reflection: It's Graduation Day the Tribe! New Great Storytellers Are Born Around the Fire! Day 5 of 5 - Section 4: Revisit Essential Question

 

I believe it's important that students can connect their learning to a common theme.  We revisit our essential question across disciplines as often as it is applicable.  I was surprised how many great ideas my students have come up with this early in the unit about why we hand stories down from one generation to the next.  In reflection, I need to make the box of their responses larger before we add to it again!
