With our last investigation ideas wrapping up, we revisited our Driving Question Board to see that we had so many questions that launched our unit and now we feel that we could honestly answer them! Over the course of a few days, we agreed to answer the six big questions together, and then students were given choice on the others. We figured out so much about many types of organisms, where their matter and energy go in an ecosystem (even when they die and get consumed), and how plants grow (since they don't consume other living things like consumers and decomposers do)! Here's our DQB that launched our unit! Way to go 5th graders!
