Inquiry sample

WALT:  gather information

Every Wednesday we have been learning about the inquiry process while finding out about different cultural dress from around the world. The first stage of an inquiry is to gather information ‘Get It’. First we chose a culture we wanted to find out more about and then started researching. 


Matrix showing what you think and what your inquiry teacher thinks.

I think:

1. What are you most proud of? That I used different websites and that I used lots of different sources 

2. What did you find challenging? Trying to find different sources that weren't fake

3.  My next ‘Get It’ goal is? Ask questions about the answers in the sorcres

Reading sample

My reading goal this term was to…Make connections/look for patterns                                               

TASK inquiring readers go through a process to gather, organise and respond to new information. We have been using  the ‘GET IT, SORT IT, USE IT’ process for our own reading inquiry.

My inquiry question was…what is beef sheep and dairy farming


GET IT...use a range of sources by questioning and predicting

SORT IT...analyse and sort information to answer my question: see if my thinking has changed, look for patterns by questioning inferring, summarising

USE IT…discuss what I have found out with others and make connections


I can research using a range of sources

I can keep asking questions as a research

I can sort information and see patterns

I can show changes in my thinking

I can co-operate with others to discuss ideas

I can share my learning with others

I can manage my own learning and behaviour to work independent 

How did my thinking change during my inquiry? What patterns did I notice?

How did my thinking change during my inquiry? What patterns did I notice? I noticed that my thinking changed during my inquiry by not knowing anything about cows and knowing a lot
