Enigma Table

The 'Enigma Table' stands alone in our Classroom and at the beginning of the week I put an interesting but not immediately indentifiable object (see photo). During the week the children come up to the table (independently) and have lots of interesting discussions about what the object could be. There is a pencil pot and post it notes available for them to write their ideas down (great for monitoring their writing and honic skills).

At the end of the week, we have a class circle time where we talk about our ideas. At this point, the children usually challenge each others' ideas about why it 'can't be'. We finish off by showing them what the object is for, usually followed by cries of "that's what I was going to say"!

If you have any ideas what the object in the photo is then post your answers here!

    Nice post.You can't compose a decent presentation until you recognize what the body of the paper says. Consider composing the early on section(s) after you have finished whatever remains of the paper, instead of before.Be beyond any doubt to incorporate a snare toward the start of the presentation. This is an announcement of something adequately fascinating to propel your peruser to peruse whatever remains of the paper, it is an essential/intriguing experimental issue that your paper either unravels or addresses. You ought to attract the peruser and make them need to peruse whatever is left of the paper. refer : http://essaypaperreviews.com/
