What might you say or do to encourage STEM thinking habits during student activities? This STEM Thinking Habit activity will provide you with some practice. For each STEM Thinking Habit type a question or two in the Questions to Encourage Thinking column. Here’s a hint; try starting your questions with "how", "what if", or "why.”
Be sure to log in before you start then when you're done, save your work in "My Notebook" so you can download it and print it later. Use it when you're working with students, and notice which questions lead to deeper thinking, such as analyzing, evaluating or creating.
