 Students will create "I Wonder" questions and post them on the "I Wonder Bulletin Board." They will answer the questions that can be easily solved by searching the Internet. All other questions will be placed in the "Research Project" spot on the board. Those questions will be used for passion projects. Students will choose a topic to research and create a product/presentation.
