Reflection: Intervention and Extension The Location of Earth - Section 3: Explore


It's amazing how valuing student questioning and thoughts inspires the inquiry process! By asking students to share their questions about Earth at the beginning of this lesson, students continued asking questions throughout the rest of this lesson!

For example, during this conference, Milky Way Galaxy Conference, the students wonder what is at the middle of the Milky Way Galaxy. After finishing their research, these students researched the answer to their question, and excitedly shared their findings with me: Researching own Questions.
