Reflection: ELL Students Experiment: Does the Heads or Tails Side of a Quarter Hold More Drops of Water? - Section 3: Guided Practice

 

After working with my students for a few weeks, I know that not all students will be able to copy the information into the experiment foldable for their notebooks.  Due to this, I have created an additional resource, does the heads or tails side of a quarter hold more drops of water, experiment steps, which includes all of the steps of the scientific method completed for this experiment.  In the original lesson, I typed out the procedure and planned to give it to every student to save us time.  Now I realize that some students will need the accommodation of having all of the steps typed out. I do feel that hearing the information, seeing the information, and writing the information themselves helps them retain the information better, but it is just not practical for all students to be able to do this in the limited time frame we have.  I will have the steps precut and put into baggies for those students who need this accommodation.  They will have to figure out which step goes in each location before I tell the class.  Having it in front of them may help these students feel more confident in participating as well.
