This is a PowerPoint Presentation by my second class at the Cape Fear Center for Inquiry in Wilmington, North Carolina. . This presentation reflects an inquiry continuum within the thematic unit of geography. The students began by recalling what they already knew about the seven continents and then asked questions to shape their research. Students also discussed what research sources would most helpful to answer their questions. After two sessions of small group work in the computer lab, students created PowerPoint slides to synthesize their findings. This was a challenging but age-appropriate project because students had to also work cooperatively in collaborative groups, use technology responsibly and implement design ideas to support their final product
