Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Cosmically Cool Planet Research! Day Five: Word Choice Day! - Section 4: Independent Work: Choosing Cosmically Cool Words


You'll notice that my student pages are different than the one I provided for you in the packet.  I often am changing and tweaking things to make them better for my students.  In this case, I noticed the students had a hard time organizing their words, and knowing how many of which kind they had written down.  For this reason, in the new packet, I changed it to add stars and circles to record the interesting words and figurative language.
