Math teachers (and I suspect other teachers) love to find interesting images and then ask each other: “What Can You Do With This?” It prompts a lot of good questions and gets people to engage in ways that a drafted, scripted curriculum often can’t. (As an aside, we often prompt our ELL kiddos by asking them “What do you observe?” “What do you wonder?”)
So, I ask you,
“What Can You Do With This?”* “What do you observe? What do you wonder?”:
Useful phrases: “I observe _____.” “I wonder ____.”
I obviously have my own observations and wonderings, which I can share later.
