Surprising Science Questions
I have a large bulletin board in the science lab entitled, Surprising Science Question of the Week. Every week, I put a question on the board, along with a picture clue that the students much research in order to find the answer. They put their answers, along with their name and grade level, in a pocket that I have hanging outside my door. I give a personalized Science Whiz of the Week Certificate that I created on my computer to everyone who gave a correct answer. The winners also get their names posted in the hallway along with the answer to the question. I was amazed when my answer pocket started filling up! The children even stop me in the hallway to ask me if the new question is up and if they answered it correctly.
