We most enjoyed the light blocks, light balls, and interactive light images wall. We each created drawings and wrote descriptions for our favourite installation in our unit of inquiry journal.
We are now using our 'I wonder...' questions to collaboratively plan next steps in our learning. To support our scientific process we will be using this learning cycle as support:
