  • Next message: Hall, Georgia: "RE: [Teacher-talkinquiry] from extending kits to developing kits"

    Georgia,
    It's not so bad when you take it one kit at a time. I'm lucky now because none of my projects are grant funded, which means that though I have less money to work on, I don't have any time restrictions. I have two projects that have really been in the works for almost a year now. I want to finish them this summer, but the more I think about how to
    incorporate more inquiry, the more unsure I am what I want to do with them.

    One of my current projects is a big dinosaur kit with five activities, some of which have more inquiry and some less. That one I'm feeling pretty okay about because at least there are choices for students and teachers on how they want to use it. The other kit I thinking about scraping completely and starting over is on mammal skulls and teeth. The
    kit has eight different skulls and is supposed to focus on what we can learn about an animal by studying its teeth and skull. This one is such a rich topic for inquiry, but I'm not sure where to go with it. It's really frustrating.
