EXAMPLE IDEAS: You may even want to model the idea through the retelling of a shared class field trip. Ask the students to help retell the main events; identifying all the places and the people they met on the field trip. Record their ideas as they share them in a list order in shared format (print or digital). Then ask them to pick out the most important points and circle them on the list. Ask the students to think of a way to summarise these key points into three or four sentences. (Younger students may need guiding sentence starters to help them). Once this is complete ask the students to think about the big ideas that the field trip has them thinking about.

  • Why do you think we went on this field trip?
  • What were we trying to learn about?
  • How does this connect to our key ideas?
  • What happens to our thinking when we combine these ideas?
