Previously we had used his Alphabet Key.

Today we looked at the "Question Key"
It was a bit of a challenge for us today because the question key confronts students with an ANSWER and they have to suggest questions associated with the answer.

We started as a group brainstorming questions that would go with the answer of "Mapua School" and then we worked in pairs. Each pair chose an answer and set about creating questions that could go with it.

For homefun this week you need to think about the questions that could lead to "Water", "Ice" and "Steam" as being the answers.
I can't wait to see what you think of next week!
