  • More fun stuff / the discrepant inquiry is when you provide a problem for the kids to solve, they solve it by asking the teacher questions that can be answered by only yes or no answers (if stuck, divide the kids into groups and let them brainstorm) and it can be timed if teachers have multiple sections of kids. Give the section with the quickest time extra credit or recess or candy, etc. Prevents kids from telling later sections the answers\n

    24. 24. In 1837, a boy named John and his six brothers and sisters lived on a farm in a beautiful, wooded area in Tennessee. His family planted corn & raised animals for food and milk. His father was a lawmaker and his mother taught English in a local school. They were happy & prosperous.
    25. 25. In 1839, the family moved to a dry, treeless, flat prairie where it was difficult to raise enough food to survive. Three of John’s siblings died. Unable to make a living farming, his father went back to being a legislator and his mother wrote for a newspaper. They missed their home in the mountains.
