So we all agreed that from all our questions based on our anchoring phenomena, that we should start with figuring out how we smell something. We developed some initial models to explain our thinking, and then used a model analysis tool to compare them. It'll generate some great conversation as we work to establish how we smell an odor!
We used our Notice/Wonder chart to begin generating questions for our Driving Question Board. There was really great conversation between the students today, and there were LOTS of great questions generated! Check out the start of our DQB!
And combining both sections of students, we ended up with a DQB that looks like this! We've got our work cut out!
So we pulled out our good 'ol "Notice and Wonder" charts....
And watched as Mrs. Brinza did some odd things today.
1. She set out some candles, popcorn, a mystery substance in a clear jar, and some clementines.
2. They sat out awhile...
3. And then she lit the candles, popped the popcorn, opened the jar, and peeled the clementines.
We jotted down a lot of stuff...
And tomorrow we'll be creating our Driving Question board...all focused on "How Can I Smell Things from a Distance?"
