NURTZ

Quest students are learning that reading is science.  It involves making a hypothesis and checking the results.  Nurtz is an invented alphabet for which students used their knowledge of reading to translate "Fat Cat" into English.   Nurtz is a nonthreatening introduction to scientific inquiry.  Students were given a story made up of pictures and the Nurtz language.  Using the scientific method, students were asked to decode the message and translate Nurtz into English.  After a few frustrating minutes, the groups had an "Ah Ha" moment and were able to decode the story.
