Download the free probing cards
When you philosophise with children it’s good to ask more questions to deepen the conversation. There is no such thing as a good or a bad answer when it comes to philosophising, but it’s nice to see them substantiate an answer more. Further questioning can sometimes be hard in the beginning. The probing cards can help with this. You can download them here for free.
You can cut the cards out and glue them on a piece of carton or laminate them. They can be used in multiple ways. You can pull a card out of the stack and ask the question, or you can select five questions before the conversation and tell yourself that you will use them, no matter what. The cards can also be used to involve more children in the conversation. You can give each child a probing card and have them raise their hands if their question connects to the conversation.
