We are beginning a new inquiry surrounding the Winter Olympic Games. Students worked in small groups to unscramble three guiding questions that will help drive this inquiry. I really enjoyed listening to each group's conversation as they experimented with the order of various words.
|1. What does courage look like to you and how do people exhibit courage?|
2. What personal qualities help or hinder the formation of friendships?
3. How and in what ways do athletes show respect for one another and for themselves?
We also looked at some of the symbols of the Olympics. Students created a chart to record their research and thinking.
