I introduced the Super 3 to my Kinders recently and wanted to use a real life situation to help them understand the process. So, we talked about getting a new pet. We talked about the questions you would need to think about before you get a new pet, how you could learn about it, and then we voted using the SMARTboard to see what pet we would research that day to help us decide what to get. I think it is important for kids to see how the research process is not just for school but also for thinking through any real life decision or question. It was really interesting that different classes had different animals that won the vote, two classes were dogs, one was cats, and two were gerbils. Here are some photos of one of the classes voting. This also let us practice 1 to 1 counting and which is the biggest number when we counted up the votes.
