Wonder Buddies

Today we had our first session of Wonder Buddies. Wonder Buddies is a pairing up of my Grade 5 class and Mrs. Weales Kindergarten class to do research. The Kindergartens have spent all week working on their wonders, questions they have wondered about. Some of the questions were:

How is a drum made?
How do birds fly? Why can't we fly?
How can you make a butterfly out of paper?
What makes a hot air balloon fly?
How do caterpillars turn into butterflies?
How are rainbows made?

It went wonderfully well with lots of discussion amongst them. The Grade 5's had a bit of a hard time gearing their explanations down to a kindergarten level. It was a great afternoon with all enjoying it thoroughly. Looking forward to the next one.
