Ok - so I have putting a lot of thought into inquiry and how to make it a part of my classroom. I know a lot of teachers are panicking about how to do all this on an already tight schedule.
As a group, teachers are already such amazing professionals and we have already created some amazing units. Don't reinvent the wheel! Take what you already have and add a little inquiry!!! Below are some steps I used to make-over my Bear Unit to an Inquiry-Based Bear unit. Let me know what you think! NOTE: You must follow this blog in order to post a comment.
It is so cool to see inquiry enriching your lessons and making them more relevant to students. I can see how excited they get when they become involved in their learning! Already, the topic of survival is something they can understand!
