Inquiry-Portfolio Criteria

WALT:  gather information


Kerri (cooking)- Every Wednesday we have been learning about the inquiry process while cooking different dishes from around the world. We have thought about and chosen a question that we are interested in. This is to help us find out and understand more about food and cultures from around the world. Then we started researching, gathering information, and moved through the ‘Get it, Sort it, Use it’ inquiry model.


Matrix showing what you think and what your inquiry teacher thinks.

1. What are you most proud of?
That my groups cooking worked. That we got to choose our own questions and use the laptops to find stuff out.

2. What did you find challenging?
that we had to work with a buddy. o I can work it out by my self

3.  My next ‘Get It’ goal is?
With support I can gather information.

Reflection ECG
Thinking back over your fraction learning…

How do you feel about your learning or what you have learned?
I have learned that i don't need materials to work out maths because i've learnt it already
What do you know and/or understand?
2+2=4 so 20+20=40 and 3+3=6 so 30+30= 60 and 5+5=10 so 50+50=100.
1/2 is bigger than 1/3 because the 2 tells me is is cut into 2 pieces, the 3 tells me it is cut into 3 pieces. The 3 pieces will be smaller.
What could you do now to further your learning?
How to work with smaller fractions. I want to be be able to work out what 10/4 might be.
