"Wonder Wall" {Write children's questions inside the speech/thought bubbles... could put their name underneath the bubble.}

Wonder wall and other bulletin board ideas.my students loved writing their thoughts on the black poster love the Wonder Wall title.

this is not a box...A great idea for a Provocation. Give every child the same box and get them to create a plan for what it could be and then write a story around what they create. This could be an awesome technology unit.

This is not a box. Used this with they made a 'box', wrote on all sides what it really is, then filled it with examples of creative thinking attributes. Fun take away :)
