Create a physical or digital space in your classroom labeled the "Curiosity Corner." Tailor it to fit your classroom dynamics. A physical corner with a dedicated bulletin board or wall space is tangible and allows for a visually appealing display of questions.

Activity Description

Encouraging students to ask questions and explore their curiosity is essential to effective teaching and learning. When students are encouraged to ask questions, they become more engaged in learning, develop critical thinking skills, and gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter.


Asking questions is a natural part of the learning process. It allows students to clarify their understanding of a topic, challenge assumptions, and explore new ideas. When students are encouraged to ask questions, they become more confident in their learning ability and develop a sense of ownership over their education.


Alternatively, a digital platform, such as an online bulletin board or collaborative document, provides flexibility for remote learning or tech-integrated classrooms. Encourage students to write down any questions or curiosities they have during the lesson on sticky notes or in an online form. Dedicate a few minutes at the end of each class to address one or two of these questions as a class discussion, promoting curiosity as an integral part of the learning journey.
