Reflection: Adjustments to Practice The Daffodil Project Part 2 - Section 3: Out to Plant!


My team and I talked about how adjusting this assignment to meet NGSS standards really made it come alive! We all agreed that students knew what to do with the bulbs and could plant them properly because they understood the external parts of the bulb and how it needed to be placed in order to survive. Having them use the text, draw and then deduce from their observations and evidence was exciting to see. Critical thinking was practiced and applied to real life. It was awesome!

  This was the best yet!
