KWHL Chart

  1. What are you doing for the state research? Are you doing the 50 states or just your state? I have to do a state project and am just too spent to think of one!

      Well…we're actually doing both, since I teach 4th and 5th. 5th graders learn about the regions and choose a state to research and complete a project. 4th graders learn about our state specifically and work on a project about that. I use it as an opportunity for all of my ELL students to learn about our state, then we branch out to the research projects. I'm tired just thinking about it!! Are you doing a project on your state?

    I am doing mapping and some seeds and plant life cycles. Anything to keep us outside!

  3. Love the chart, especially the H section. Thanks for sharing Kristen!

    This is great! Thanks for sharing! This week we are testing-ugh. Our last project/unit of study in science is Space-the planets. The kids are working on group posters. Then we'll work on local history in SS to end the year. When is your last day?

  7. This is a GREAT staple for my files! Thanks Kristen!! I think it is too funny we always comment on each others blogs at the same time! I think our brains are connected somehow!! 🙂

    Oh, this is just AWESOME! Thank you so much for sharing for free. 🙂 I have known about the KWL chart, since I was a high school student myself, I think. But it was not until last year, during my grad program, that I learned about the "H" part. Such an important addition!

    Ooo, I like the "How could I learn this" feature. Great idea for our ELL kids. 🙂

    Have you ever seen "Misconceptions" on KWL chart. It's neat because you can move a post-it to that column when a student reads new information that now makes them realize that a idea was not correct or a misconception.
