I really like the idea of using open ended questions as a starter for lessons and often use the Thunks website from Independent Thinking. I found a new site which I called Thought Questions which has questions in a similar vein although the questions on there are often a bit deeper. They could certainly lead to good ‘citizenship’ and PSHE discussions. There are also some lovely images which go with each question.
I am going to use the images from the site to create an interactive thinking display in my room. The questions will be in the middle of the display and the children will add their answers/ideas on post-it notes around the display.
Have a look at the site and see what you think.
