The inquiry began by the grade 5 students’ wonderings about two students in the community class after an assembly. They noticed that the students were communicating via Proloquo2go. This is a computer picture communication exchange system software that allowed the students to use images to string together sentences. The grade 5s also noticed that others in the community class could not speak at all, and were shrieking delightedly when a song came over the speaker systems. The discussion continued after the assembly and the students were asked to spend a day recording all requests that they made throughout the day. They began to observe that communication involved more than just speaking and formed “The Communication Team”. So began the inquiry.
