Students have been working through the Finding Out stage of their Exhibition for the past couple of weeks. Below are a few of the Thinking Routines that we have either tried, or plan to try at some point of the next several weeks. Some of them serve the purpose of tuning in and activating prior knowledge, others deepening thinking and understanding, and some of them can be used more as reflection tools.
* some photos have been added as the routines were attempted
1. 4 If’s (might try this out as a way to think or plan action/reflection)
2. Tug of War
+ Really cool website! Allows kids to make news headlines:
4. Circle of Viewpoints
5. I Used to Think, Now I think (could be used for a final reflection or after the finding out phase?)
