During Winter Weekend we tossed around quite a few good ideas about implementing inquiry practices in our classroom and helping students understand the inquiry skills they are supposed to master. Some of the ideas included "mapping" classroom activity to the poster using stick-on labels or markers, laminating "placemat" for groups to use as reflection when finishing a task, putting the continuum on notebook covers and making folders out of the continuum. Hope everybody will try using the poster. If you do. please post here. Any other strategies or projects that promote inquiry are welcome too! Hope to hear from many of you!
