This week Nitzanim conducted research about the שופר (shofar) independently! Their own questions and ideas drove their research.
Here’s how they did it:
- Brainstorm what it means to conduct research. One child defined research as, “When you’re wondering about something…you go on a quest until you find out what you’re looking for.”
- Make observations about the שופר (shofar) based on what you can see, hear, and smell:
3. Come up with a question you’re really wondering about.
4. Form an opinion or make a hypothesis about your question.
Wow, Nitzanim! You really had your research brains on!
