Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

Hands-on activity: purchase plastic balls for a ball pit from the discount store. Use a marker to write the questions (from the template, or own choice) directly onto the balls. Have students select random balls from a sack to ask with their partner. Photograph partners with their favourite question-ball for display in the classroom, to build community and connection.
