In these videos, I explore with my students how the brain works and what makes a good question. We do some memory activities, make inferences about a painting, and play a guessing game that requires good questioning in order to determine what is inside a box.

In this video, I talk with my students about the brain – what it does, how it works, and how good thinkers have to use their five senses. Then we start the Memory Challenge.
Good Thinkers = Great Questioners
In this video, I ask students to look at a painting and make inferences about what the artist is interested in. Then we talk about the importance of asking good questions. Finally, I ask students to “notice” or “wonder” something about an object.
