Encouraging pupils to question
I have videoed a range of scientific phenomena that children may have witnessed themselves.  For each video I have posed questions for teachers to ask their pupils.  The idea is to encourage the pupils to think about what could be happening and to discuss with their peers, but without the stress (often for the teacher as well as the pupils) and competition of having to find the 'right' answer.
As well as encouraging pupils to question, I am also excited that the videos could be used as a starting point:
a) to show children that if they start to look closely then they could see some of these phenomena themselves and
b) to inspire children to start looking themselves in their local environment for other phenomena that make them wonder, and to share these with their class (and more widely).
