Children want to explore, dig, build, play, and wonder. To do this they need to touch, feel, see, observe, listen, manipulate, plan, and create. How does a teacher build and maintain a learning environment that will help students investigate meaningful questions? How does a teacher plan and manage ongoing investigations? How does a teacher use resources to bring learning to life?

Through investigations, teachers can allow students to explore concepts and develop understanding while maintaining the integrity of the curriculum. In The Power of Investigating, we invite you to explore the promise that investigations offer when exploring student and teacher questions.
