Today was a great day for our second visit to Sweat Mountain Park. The weather was perfect and our outing was fun. During our first visit, students recorded observations and made inferences. For the second trip to the park and the second step in our research process, students were asked to come up with several questions for research. It is hoped that these questions will lead to interesting and significant studies. Sometimes this is the most difficult aspect of research--- deciding the question. We will continue our research and question finding next Wednesday with a visit to the media center.
“If we would have new knowledge, we must get a whole world of new questions.”
“To be able to ask a question clearly is two-thirds of the way to getting it answered.”
“The important thing is not to stop questioning.”
“The reward for working one’s way through the known is to find a new question on the other side, formulated in a new way.”
