Wonder-Full Thinking - Promoting inquiry through student-driven investigations
Science and Children
National Science Teaching Association
This article highlights an eight-week investigation during which children engaged in varying approaches that documented their wonderings once per week. Students in grades 3–5 rotated through 20-minute stations with various teachers during the weekly structured outdoor time the school implemented to provide curricular connections within a natural environment. We led the students in the wonder inquiry process as a station, yet the engagements and activities could easily be applied within a typical classroom.
