Taking notes… Which format works for your explorations today?
  • Next: *Provide time for all learners to pre-create their learning journal page. Then link on their chosen exploration link. Remind them to use bulleted notes as they are learning. Finally, have them create a biographical sketch about their discovery. *The outline above provides a variety of ideas that could be included in their biography report. *Youngest learners could draw and color a picture (scribe a label and one or two facts).
