Where can you explore lots of different questions?
Thick vs. Thin Questions for Research
Thin: What is 3D printing?
THICK: How can 3D printing benefit students and school?
Thin: When did the Olympics start?
THICK: How have the Olympics changed from when they first began?
Remember! THICK questions = THINKING
Develop a BIG IDEA question that will guide your research. Write it down in your research packet. You will then pull out sub-topics from within the question. These will organize your notes when you move into the note-taking phase of research.
