Finding your way through the jungle of information
Inquiry Challenge (NEW)
Every week in the Inquiry Challenge Blog there will be a topic for you to research. You can do this on your own or your teacher may ask you to do the Challenge as a class. You will be given some information (videos, websites) about a topic and then there will be some questions for you to answer. You can post them into the blog comments if you like. All the posts will be made public at the end of the week so you can see what others found out about the topic. Hopefully you will find the topics interesting and you will learn something that you didn't know.
