I was first introduced to "Invitations for Learning" at my York University Kindergarten Additional Qualification Course instructed by Joanne Babalis. Invitations for learning, or provocations, are just that- an invitation presented by educators for students to learn, ask questions, and explore. With the potential to turn into an inquiry, teachers often document the learning of the students that visit the provocation, through video clips, photographs, work samples and written observations.
The following video is an invitation to learn about Inukshuks after a read-aloud of
"The Three Snow Bears" by Jan Brett.
