Thunks – Thunk: A beguiling question about everyday things that stops you in your tracks and helps you start to look at the world in a whole new light, and, on top of that they can make your brain hurt.
I have been exploring the playful use of Thunks by Ian Gilbert ever since I read Ian’s book “Why do I need a teacher when I’ve got Google”.
One possible use – within your group read the 1st Thunk and take a minute or two to think about them. Importantly there are NO right or wrong answers to these questions – simply YOUR answers. You do, however, need to think about your answers and be able to justify them – in other words, don’t say the first thing that comes into your head, AND, be prepared to fully explain your answers when you give them.
