Reflection: Students with Disabilities Simple Machines Introduction - Section 2: Explore

 

For this activity to be purposeful, I wanted to provide students with a very structured way of collecting and organizing their observational data.  By providing them with the chart, they are able to make initial observations and later, go back and add additional ideas and supporting details to their work.  In student sample A, you can see how the chart helped the student to make connections between what the machine does and what he thinks it is. student sample B demonstrates how the student was later able to go back and add the appropriate simple machine name for that example.
