I see I think I wonder

“To acquire knowledge, one must study;
but to acquire wisdom, one must observe.” 


Learners of PYP 1 took a gallery walk and observed everything they found on their way. They observed things like boards, sunlight, clouds, toys, paper, trees etc. Soon, they reflected their observation using - I see - what they saw during the walk. I think -What they think they are and where did it come from. I wonder - The questions popping up in their mind. It was an independent task in which learners have shown curiosity.
