I had the pleasure of supporting Room 3 today as they were completing research for their Connected Curriculum Inquiry.
The students were to select an Atua (Maori God) and then develop 3 key questions to investigate.
Some students selected Tawhirimatea. they were investigating the links between Tawhirimatea and the Cyclones.

The students worked in groups of 3 and each student was given a role.  The students were provided with a graphic organiser to collate their ideas and Ipads or a chrome books was used to investigate their key questions.
