Reflection: Checks for Understanding What Do Metrologists Do? - Section 3: Explore


Kindergarteners can have various learning experiences and exposure to information about a specific topic yet, they may not truly understand the concept.  As the teacher, I allowed my students to explore the nonstandard measuring instruments in addition to modeling the appropriate use of each of them.  We specifically talked about how an item must be precisely aligned with the end of the measuring instrument.  I explicitly demonstrated this with all the items.  Nevertheless, when the students had to participate in the performance event for themselves, they did not apply what I showed them.  Their measuring application did not duplicate what they were instructed to do.  So, I had to rethink my instruction process and reteach the concept.  It happens to the best of us!
