Question Hat

Have you ever used the question hat strategy?

Give each child a piece of piece of paper and a pencil.

Ask everyone to write down a question they have.

The question could be something related to what they have learned today. It could be something that came up in the lesson, an idea they had for reflection or a challenge.

You can select a theme specifically, or can leave it open to pupils to pose any questions that they feel are relevant.

After a few minutes, collect all the questions in the hat (or a box or bucket).

You then give the hat to one of the children who picks a question randomly which they then try and answer. You can open this up for discussion across the group.

The hat gets passed round the circle until everyone has picked and answered a question.
