Polygons are 2 dimensional (flat).
Shapes that aren’t polygons have a round side and are open.

WALT: ask effective questions.

We are beginning our group inquiries as part of our exploration into sustainability and 'How can we avoid causing extinction?'. Some of our initial questions were closed and very shallow. We are exploring how we can ask better questions and why this is important.

WALT: present.

We do this by READING with…
*EXPRESSION (changing my voice, e.g. volume, pace, to suit the emotions/tone
of what I am reading).
*ACCURACY (I need to practice tricky words beforehand).
*CLARITY (I need to speak clearly, pronouncing words correctly).
