Inquiry Learning

See, Think, Wonder!

The first steps in an inquiry learning process often emerge from observations of the world around us.

The See, Think, Wonder thinking routine encourages students to make careful observations and thoughtful interpretations. It helps stimulate curiosity and sets the stage for inquiry.

Many of us have noticed this cement marker in our playground near 119 St.

Does anyone know what this marker is for? Who put it there? When?

Put on your detective caps and find out!
