5 The Why Game  This is a great strategy for getting the students to dig deeper. Directions:  One student poses a “why” question based on the content being learned  The second student answers the question and then asks a related why question.  The game continues until one of the students is stumped or a predetermined number of questions is reached. (Note: Inform the students of the circular answer rule)

6 Sample: How the Camel Got His Hump By Rudyard Kipling Q:Why did the camel get his hump? A: He was not working. Q: Why wasn’t he working? A: He was too lazy. Q: Why was he too lazy?

8 Blooming Question Cube  Create a cube large enough to write on.  On each face, print key verbs from the levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.  Students roll the cube and come up with a question/task that incorporates the verb on the face.  Students complete the question/task. Note: This can be played as a one or two player game. Responses can be recorded.

9 Minimal Preparation Version  Use a single die  Make a key for the students to use  When the student rolls a certain number, they look at the list of verbs for that number on the key Blooming Question Cube

11 Tag-On Strategy o This is an easy and effective strategy to implement. o Use the questions that are provided in your teacher materials and “tag-on” and additional part. o The tag-on should raise the level of difficulty and thinking involved.

12 Examples Map and Globe Skills: What information does a map scale give? Why is this information important? Social Studies (Immigration) Name three countries from which immigrants came to America. Why do you think these groups came? Tag-On Strategy
