Our Wonder Project

We are embarking on a 6 week journey into being active, curious learners. Your child brought home a paper today describing this project. Your child will receive a journal to start capturing all the questions, research, wondering, and curiosity involved in our home/school project. Please read over the information carefully and let me know if you have any questions. Each week I will send home a new homework page like the one sent home today.

Tuesday's Homework: 
Meet with a parent or other adult at home asking these questions:
·     What is Curiosity?
·     Is it important? Why or Why Not?
Write notes on what you talk about below (parent or child can write)

Watch at least two of Curious Learner videos and think about these questions:
·      How do these curious people use their curiosity or passion to learn new things?
·      What advice did they have for others who are curious?

Take notes below on what you notice (parent or child can write)
*Videos will be uploaded after 4:00p.m. today.

Thank you for your support at home! Have fun picking a curious topic. :)
