Inquiry Ideas Mentor Text: Read aloud Manfish: A Story of Jacques Cousteau to help students develop ideas for inquiry studies.  In the book, Jacques wonders about the ocean as a child and begins to develop his own resources as a result of his inquiries.  After reading aloud, discuss what Jacques wondered about and what he did to develop answers to his wonders.  Provide time for students to develop a list of wonders in their Wonder Notebooks.
