Today our "I can" statement was: I can research information using the process of inquiry.
Usually one Mondays do a close reading and free read, but we started research today and because of the tight computer schedule, we had to do something a bit different today. Tomorrow we will work on our MLK packets and free read. But for today...
The first thing we did today was take notes about what the process of inquiry is. Here is the PowerPoint we used. Copy the notes from a neighbor.
After taking notes, each person got their Chromebook and followed the directions below to ask questions and organize their research on MindMeister. Follow the instructions to create your own mind map so that you won't be behind when we get the computers again on Wednesday.
