Plant Exhibition Podcasts – 4B

At the centre of an Inquiry is the reflection on the process. We created podcast episodes by interviewing each other. Our questions were focused on technology process and using information.

Leave a comment for any of the podcast authors to let them know what you think of their thinking, or to ask them a question about their work.

Sharks! Part 4

How’s Ms Lockyer going on her Sharks! work? Check out my first Scratch game here. I need a bit of help to get it working. Do you have any suggestions?

If you have a Scratch account, you can see the script for my game here, and can perhaps spot my mistakes:

I have had a go at making a graph to help explain what I learnt from the Twitter feed:

shark graph

Can you give me some feedback on my graph? I am wondering how I might improve it. I am also wondering if it shows any AHA! information on our inquiry. Please leave a comment here.

SHARKS! Part 1

We are learning to think about what we already know. We are learning to connect our prior thinking with new thinking. We are learning to make thinking connections with others.

Add to our THINK-PUZZLE-EXPLORE grid.

Tips for the grid: respect others’ work and do not edit or delete their sentences. You may add to the same square in the PUZZLE or EXPLORE sections. Type your first name after your sentence.
