Tonight is really your only chance to prepare for tomorrow’s checkpoint. This has been a crazy week!

Tomorrow, I will be expecting you to do the following things:

  • Explain which key concepts you think will help you become an expert on your spark and why
  • Share the driving questions you have created so far and where you think you can get answers to those questions
  • Share some of the most interesting information you have found using those questions
  • Involve the adults that visit us tomorrow in conversations about your spark, the work you have been doing and progress you think you have been making
  • Find ways to involve them in your learning by asking questions and seeking advice

Make a comment to tell us what you plan to do tonight to make sure you’re ready for tomorrow.

You did some amazing thinking today. It was really important that we revised the Key Concepts so that you could use them to full effect during the Exhibition. By the time we did the third set of photographs your questions were much, much more conceptual, more powerful and more interesting – you really seemed like you wanted to know the answers.

Make a comment to share the following information with us:

  • What were the most interesting questions you asked about the photographs?
  • Which questions did you really want to find answers for?
  • What questions have you created that will really help you become an expert on your spark?

This afternoon was fantastic. You guys really nailed it, and your parents were an outstanding audience and brought so much knowledge and so many new perspectives and ideas into the Exhibition process. I am so glad that I had my Nikon camera with me today because I think it has helped me capture the atmosphere in the room this afternoon.

Share the photos with your parents, and if you want a high-quality copy of any of the photos you can download them from our Flickr account.
