Notice and Wonder Notes

Give your students a way to reflect deeper with a Notice and Wonder Notes template!

Start by providing your students with a link to any sort of visual resource to reflect on – this could be a photo, video, or piece of art.

Students are then prompted to write things they notice about the visual, and what questions those thoughts inspire! Finding the answers can then be assigned as personal tasks, or something to collaborate on as a class (especially if there are any common themes that arise).
