picture books to inspire inquiry

Posted on: March 10th, 2015 by jnovakowski

Over many years, I have been gathering a collection of picture books that I use to inspire inquiry when working with students. I think the first title of this sort that I used was I Wonder by Tana Hoban and it is still a favourite of mine today. Many of the books below are from my science collection but many are also more general – they can can be used to inspire a sense of wonder, curiosity and asking of questions. Many of our younger students or students learning English are learning to form questions, and having some models helps with this. Many of this books are filled with questions or suggest sources of inspiration of questions. Some provide suggestions as to how to pursue your inquiry questions – through investigation, reading about it or asking an expert.
