Starter questions may be.....What did you find? Where would you find something like that? Where did it come from?

Comment on More Inquiry Based Learning by Bekki http://earlylearningcentral.ca/?p=1692&cpage=1#comment-980 Bekki Sat, 10 Nov 2012 23:11:59 +0000 http://earlylearningcentral.ca/?p=1692#comment-980 We were outside playing the other day and one of the students asked me why the grass was growing in the pavement? (Since we had discussed that they could eat pumpkin seeds without any fear of them growing in their stomaches because there was no soil, sunshine or water in our stomaches to help them grow..) This has launched us into a major investigation of how the grass can grow when there is NO WAY water can get through the pavement because it is hard!!! They also think I am wrong and maybe plants don't need dirt after all. (Too cute)... I have plans for an investigation this week.can I fit a cup of rocks, some sand and water all into one cup (similar in size)...Rocks go in first......then we will predict if the sand will fit in even though the rocks are to the top of the cup....then I will pour it in so they see it fill the empty crevices and spaces, then we will predict if the water will still fit it...and then it will be added so that they see how it seeps in as well. Then my plan is to revisit the pavement and pull up some of the grass from the pavement....CAN'T wait to see their faces when they start making connections.

I like this idea of documentation, but I am a visual person and it would be neat to see exactly how you do this! Can you show an examples?
