Beth Mitchell: Wonder Bubbles
Some of our first graders created "Wonder Bubbles" after coming up with "I wonder" questions. They were starting to study the rainforest in science so the majority of their questions were about that biome. One student wanted to know about shark teeth, though. They looked in books for their answers and shared these on their bubble along with a graphic feature of their choice.
