Reflection: Rules and Consequences The Back is Where it’s At! - Section 2: Activity


In today's lesson I make it very clear to the students that they are just observing the worms today. At the work station I make sure to look for students who are following the direction that was given and praising them when they follow through. Students who touch the worms (in this lesson I only had one) are told to used the worm books as a resource tool instead of observing the worms themselves.

In later lessons I allow the students to touch and handle the worms, but for today's lesson I merely want them observing. I do this because I have not gone over animal safe handling such as washing our hands after touching animals, being gentle so as not to harm the animals, respecting the animal as a living being, etc.
