Today we started our nonfiction writing unit. We had such a good time! We began by looking at a book that answered such questions as what is earwax made of, how many hairs are on my head, how high until my balloon pops, and my personal favorite if a deaf person speaks in sign and reads lips, do they think in sign too?
We then sat down and created a list of things we thought we were an expert in (what we had to teach others), and things we could learn more about. It was amazing how similar some of our lists looked. There were also a lot of people who's expert lists matched some "want to know" lists. It was a great experience!
