Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Let's "Do" Science - Section 1: Bell Ringer: What Skills Are Useful As You "Do" Science?


Teaching science process skills enhances oral and written communication. It's a way for students, at all levels, to express themselves. Drawing is a scientific skill that enriches language development in all students, especially bilingual students and those with special needs. I want students to use every possible means to convey their thinking and if a student struggles with words, then they should draw to describe their thinking.
