Asking Effective Questions
Some Other Options for Mystery Skype Mystery Number Skype Inquiry… on anything! If Kindergarten students can do it, can’t we? How two other classrooms are doing this at West Langley Elementary…
Mystery Number Skype Each group has one or more Mystery numbers the other class has to guess Use mathematical questioning principles to structure call I.e. Odd or even, multiples of, place value, factors Support materials can include hundreds charts (paper/felts and/or pocket charts), number lines, math apps (Hands-on Math)
Animal Inquiry Mystery Skype Each class has a mystery animal and has to ask and answer questions to learn features of the other animal Primary adaptations can include: increased teacher direction, “Same/Different” signs, designated question askers/answerers, and turn taking (increase prep work with kids and not as much adapted to “in the moment” by students to decrease the overwhelming nature of the activity) Supports include previous library research, classroom literature, simple web searches and Wikis, WorldBookKids
