I Wonder in Five Words

Every year we do a back to school community project.  It’s a way to help establish culture, get to know students, and begin to form the necessary community  bonds for a productive year.  In the past we’ve had students do quilt squares, book advertisements, and what’s on your nightstand posters.  I recently came across this video of student created artwork where they featured a question that they wonder about in five words.  I love how this promotes creativity and inquiry at the same time!  This might be my project for this year.

    I like this idea. It could be an ongoing project that students work on throughout the year…trying to answer their question. Thanks for sharing!

    Fantastic! I am so impressed. I would love to know how you did this. Ipad? Did you take pictures of their individual projects and video them together? I am doing Georgia Heard’s A Place of Wonder activities this year and this nails it on the head.

      I can’t take credit for this video. I originally found it through the educators PLN. http://edupln.ning.com/video/i-wonder-in-five-words However, I think taking pictures and then putting it together with iMovie or some other program would be ideal. If I didn’t have iPads for mine this year I was thinking of having students use letters from magazines to create more variance in their work. Good luck! (Georgia Heard is awesome!)
