Like many of my conversations with our CoT team, Lis' was excited about what this thinking routine revealed, the conversation it initiated, and the implications it could have throughout this unit of study. During our conversation, Lis and I discussed the power of ownership, purpose, and context. We both felt that this Thinking Routine will give students a sense of ownership, purpose, and context throughout this science unit. I'll let Lis share more in the comments (hint, hint) and I hope the rest of you will, as well!

Look at a globe and look at the water around the world.
I want to explore how water got in the drain.
