Activating Prior Knowledge and Inferring in Science

Today, I played the YouTube video we posted of our Monarch caterpillars eating milkweed (using our Zoomy handheld microscope). I urged my students to look closely and draw what they see - using detail! It was awesome to see them looking so closely ... and all the while saying "I wonder" statements aloud and trying to answer, using their schema, others' questions.

I See, I Know, I Think, I Wonder - Looking Closely and Inferencing

Tomorrow, they will complete the "I think," "I know," and "I wonder" boxes. I'm excited to see what they write and draw!
