Now can you ask the most powerful questions, in order to unlock an even wider universe of knowledge? And why is the choosing of a simple word (like "How" or "Why") the key to your greatest quest and your greatest question? This activity walks students through creating questions, evaluating the quality of their questions and sets the scene for further research.
