Tonight I read a really inspiring blog post about a Snail Inquiry occurring in Ms. Schmidt and Mrs. Theis' class. I couldn't help but connect it to one of our former class inquiries, lead by Crystal Mastrangelo (a Teacher Candidate at the time). Though "A Home for Snails" was over a year ago, it is still quite vivid in my memory.
So here is my first "throw back Thursday" #tbt blog post in honour of this engaging work:
|A snail found on my driveway was|
our spark that ignited an inquiry!
|Our Snail Amusement Park|
I think that it's really neat that Ms. Schmidt, Mrs. Theis, and Mrs. Lowe's classrooms are connecting to share their thinking around this inquiry. I have always wondered what a similar provocation would look like in a variety of classrooms. I hope that this post might inspire them to have further conversations with their students!
