What questions did you ask at school today?

Apparently this is what Einstein’s mum used to ask him when he got home from school.

Before the main part of each of my geography lessons, I like to warm up minds with a question. The inspiration came from Tony Ryan’s Thinker’s Keys. I was running low on good questions so today I decided I’d ask the pupils for some questions. And here they are. All are designed to get students thinking. I’ll post again about how I use a structured conversation to hear answers from the class.

We told you not to touch but you
couldn't help yourself, could you?

Telling children what you want is much more effective than telling them what you don't want. Now it's time to get in touch.

Would it help if we told you not to?
