Students create our area / perimeter planner

We were introduced to our central idea today and brainstormed things we were curious about and felt would help us to have a deepened understanding of our central idea.  This is what we have decided our maths unit should entail:

Creating big guiding questions like these in the beginning of the unit make the learning student-owned so the kids are instantly more engaged. Another great benefit to this is it gives the students a framework to make their own enquiries to discover and share with their peers. 

Having this displayed in our room, we will continue to refer to it and think of things we could do to find answers to our questions.
