Demonstration Demonstration Reading Reading Free Write Free Write Analyze a Graphic Organizer Analyze a Graphic Organizer KWL KWL Brainstorming Brainstorming Student asks questions such as, Why did this happen? What do I already know about this? What have I found out about this? Shows interest in the topic.

10 Types of Questions Attention Focusing: Have you seen? Do you notice? Attention Focusing: Have you seen? Do you notice? Measuring & Counting: How many? How long? Measuring & Counting: How many? How long? Comparison (for sharper observation): In how many ways are your seeds alike and how do they differ? Comparison (for sharper observation): In how many ways are your seeds alike and how do they differ? Action: What happens if… you place your pill bug in damp sand? …you pinch the seedleaves off a young plant? Action: What happens if… you place your pill bug in damp sand? …you pinch the seedleaves off a young plant? Problem-posing (more sophisticated, follows exploration & understanding, not a good first question): Can you find a way to… make your plant grow sideways? Can you separate salt from water? Can you make a sinking object float? Problem-posing (more sophisticated, follows exploration & understanding, not a good first question): Can you find a way to… make your plant grow sideways?
