based on the Question Matrix!!!
( a great way to help students think more deeply about issues.)

This 44 page resource, which will be emailed to you, as a .pdf file, is a selection of question cards and activities.

The resource includes

- 42 question cards based on the Question Matrix for display (There are two questions to an A4 sheet)

Place the cards face down in the middle of the group and students have to come up with a question using the starter.

Younger kids can use just who - what -when - why but older students need to include a range of Higher Order questions in their Inquiry.

- a ‘make and break’ activity of the key words


- two dice templates – one with What, Where, Which, Who, Why and How and the other with Is, Did, Can, Would, Will and Might for students to practise developing question starters
e.g. Throw the dice and make a question.

- an overview of the Matrix

- a variety of large A4 dialogue boxes, facing both left and right for the “Big Questions”.

(The Question Matrix was designed by Chuck Wiederhold - “Creative Learning and Higher Order Thinking”.
It contains question starters asking what, where, when/which, who, why and how. Proceeding through the matrix, the questions become more complex and open-ended.)

The Question Matrix could be used:
- to help students create their own questions about a specific topic and to encourage in-depth thinking

- as question starters for teachers to elicit further information about student’s knowledge and understanding

- to formulate questions for a particular purpose e.g. organising a camp
