You might be surprised by how many questions will arise as students navigate Flap to the Future. Observation and questioning are important science practices. This game empowers kids to plan and carry out their own investigations and encourage their curiosity.

Keep track of student questions by creating an “I Wonder” board. We recommend that you make sticky notes available so kids can write their questions as they think of them and then easily affix the notes to the board. They can sort the  questions later by topic or type, creating another opportunity for learning.

The “I Wonder” Board will grow to provide a wealth of ideas that can form the basis of independent research. Students can return to questions that interest them the most. Investigating Evidence, available as a free curriculum on the BirdSleuth website, will help you lead students through their scientific investigations.

Student-generated questions also make great SnapThought prompts.
