Mrs. Kilfoyle and Mrs. Fancher led the fourth-grade students in a web activity to help them develop their whole-class research questions.
After weeks of building background knowledge on the topic of climate change, each student developed a research question using an open-ended question word like How? or Why? Favorites rose to the top, and the classes voted for their favorites, resulting in these stellar queries:
Mrs. Hall's class: In what ways do forest fires contribute to climate change?
Mrs. Landfried's class: How does climate change impact wildlife?
Mrs. Fancher's class: How do rising sea levels threaten humans and animals?
