Reflection: Organizational Systems Science Journals - STEM Engineering Design Cycle Introduction - Section 1: Preparation


After finishing this lesson today, one of my colleagues came into my room and sat down and said, "I just don't get it. How do you get all of this done?!" Well, let me tell you a secret. I don't. The kids do! I really believe in classroom ownership, and so the things that they can do for themselves I hand over to them. The first of these for my journals (and we have literacy, math, and science journals) is for students to glue in the guiding questions. Watch the video to find out Aniyah's process! All I do is print the copies and cut them apart - she does the rest!

  Organizational Systems: How do I get this all done?!?!
