During activity: 1
Wonder Bear is a travelling teddy bear who goes home with children to ask questions about the world around us. Children write wonderings in a book, which is shared with the class.
Teachers: When Wonder bear returns to school, at a key point it’s important to share the questions asked about the wondering object with the children. This will add value to their activity at home.
If desirable: different investigation types could be displayed in the classroom to refer to when discussing how we could find answers to some of the questions returned.
Give opportunities for other children to ask questions about the object. To involve families further, family members could be invited into class to share their ideas when they return Wonder Bear.
