Reflection: Trust and Respect Macro-Structures of Animals - Bi-Peds - Section 2: Active Observation and Investigation


It is super-important that you prepare a student to demonstrate these activities for the class. It can be very embarrassing for a child to be asked off-the-cuff, and the demonstrations may suffer as a result. I also, always, prep my class that this is a scientific observation and not a time to laugh or ridicule a fellow student. Without these explicit instructions, I find demonstrations of this type tend to become unmanageable with comments being thrown out, especially if you have a class clown.
