Reflection: Real World Applications What Affect Does Climate Change Have On A Pond? - Section 3: Conclusion

 

I want students to make connections between the experiment and our work "in the field" at the pond. I scaffold the analysis questions on the lab report so that students will be able to make a connection between the global effects of climate change and how energy is transferred. I stretch their thinking to transfer these connections to what students see happening at our local pond. This can be a long, tedious process but with the right questions, students will begin to see the connections.

Some strategies to use as you scaffold your lesson include:

  • tap into prior knowledge
  • give students time to turn and talk with their partner
  • frontload your unit and/or lesson with vocabulary
  • use visual aids
  • check for understanding
