During our new rotations for Inquiry, we had to get into groups of 4-5 people. The challenge to choose things around the school that we want to modify. The groups we chose would be the same for the rest of the term. I got into a group with my friends, and then we started our first round of pictionary and charades.
After every round we would stop and talk about the word that we just told for our group. We talked about how they work and how people would do that job in the old days. It got our brains going, and ready for the task.
After morning tea, groups were sent out with iPads to look around the school at things that could be made better. Then, we put all our ideas into our group presentation and explained why we wanted to change them. My group had lots of ideas but we finally chose our top 4 and put them into the final ideas slide. It was hard to choose the top one because some of us said one, some said the other, but we soon decided what we wanted to do.
At the end of the day, we had time to share our group’s final ideas. There was still more to do on the presentation but we still have time. I really enjoyed this session of Inquiry. What are the things that we could make better? You will see soon enough!
