Last week, Room 222 collaborated on team inquiry investigations. Each team was given an non-traditional pumpkin and given the week to explore it.
These collaborative teams worked together to brainstorm interesting words, make scientific sketches, estimate and accurately measure their pumpkin.
All of their information was kept on each teams "data collection" poster.
The teams reminded each other that scientific sketches should contain accurate details and labels to help our audience understand our thinking.
Our teams were in charge of collecting measurements for height, weight and circumference. Once the estimations were made by each team member, the accurate measurement began.
Each team started by storyboarding their video. They discussed scientific vocabulary and correct sequencing needed for an effective video.
Once the storyboards were finished, it was time to make the movie. However, we couldn't discuss the whole pumpkin without exploring all of it. So... we had to get a bit messy.
