Brilliant Students

I just spent an hour discussing weather with my grade one students.  I was amazed at the knowledge they shared.  We completed a KWL chart for clouds, rain, rainbows and fog.  The activity is based on a story in our reader.  For each question in the reader, the students had already answered the questions with “What We Know”.  They asked very thoughtful, intelligent questions beyond the questions posed in the reader.  I was also provided the opportunity to include Internet technology when I asked the students how they could find information for questions.  We talked about how to decide when information is accurate or fictional.   What a breath of fresh air!
