Back to the Future: History detectives

In our “Back to the Future” Inquiry we are developing history skills.  This week we have been focusing on gathering information from different sources: field work (looking around), listening to a guest speaker (Mrs Picioane) and reading books.

Posing questions, listening to a speaker and taking notes are important skills.  Together we have made some questions to find out “What Grade Two was like in the past”.  Everyone in 2MS is bringing home a set of questions and need to interview a parent, grandparent or grown-up friend.

We will be using the interview to record historical biographies next week.

Here is a copy of the two notes that we have sent home today explaining this and our upcoming “Back to the Future extravaganza”
