Inquiry Process with Mrs Laing

Gathering information

Mrs Laing came into our class to teach us how to create inquiry questions for our ‘We are Kelston’ topic.

We worked collaboratively in groups and participated in a range of tasks:

  • Compare West Auckland to South Auckland
  • Use Western Leader articles to find facts about West Auckland
  • Read viewpoints about famous West Aucklanders
  • Draw or write facts about landmarks in West Auckland
  • A whole class art brainstorm about West Auckland

WALT use information to create inquiry questions about Kelston.

Success Criteria

  • Questions where the answer is not on the internet.
  • Open ended questions – multiple answers
  • Based on Kelston, West Auckland

Here are some students working collaboratively in mixed ability groups.
