1st and 2nd Graders Interview Each Other About Holidays

Following our Nearpod learning about holidays (Christmas around the world, Hanukkah, Kawanzaa, Diwali, and Ramadan) and Stick Around venn diagrams, pairs of students interviewed each other. I asked each of them to come up with 2 "thoughtful questions" to ask their partner. This is something we talk about during the year. They are basically questions that involve deeper thinking, opinion with support, or making connections. Sample questions students thought of for the holiday assignment were "What do you like best about a holiday you don't celebrate?" and "Why do you think sweets are important for many of the holidays?" Students used the video camera on the iPad to interview each other.
