OR send yourself some advice- What would you tell your future self if you wanted to send a message to arrive in one MONTH??? 



How could we communicate with Aliens?


What if?
What if there was life on other planets somewhere in the galaxy?

Hey Room 11! Hope you have a great day today.

Hello kidlets!
Sorry I am out today. Think of it as an adventure- exploring other classrooms. If you see any good ideas, bring them back to share tomorrow- we can learn a lot when we spend time with new people, even the little people, sometimes they have the most fun ideas!

I have a little challenge for you today- Random acts of kindness. I can't wait to hear how you go today.

It is kind of exciting to give you the chance to be leaders in the school like this. You could be the best thing to happen to the classes you are in today, I am sure the teachers will be so glad to have you join them and help out today. If you can't be useful, just keep going with your learning below. You are SUPER independent so you will have no troubles. If you need help, ask each other first- look after each other!

Communication timeline research.

Time line of different forms of communication.



KEY QUESTIONS:
WHAT is your communication item?
How does it work? What are the parts? what do they do? How does it help us to communicate?
When was it invented? Or when did it start to be used? Or what was the period of time it was mostly used in?
How has it changed over time? (Why did it need to change?)
What is interesting that we want to share with others?


The final tag you put on the timeline might look something like this. BUT you need to research first!!! Notes in your Unit of Inquiry book!
