Reflection: Journaling Making a Landform Model - Section 1: Teacher Notes


When the home-made dough started rolling in, I noticed each child's had a different consistency and color of green.  Since any color of green would work, that wasn't a problem.  But I did take note of some doughs being super gooey and some being dry.  I just found doughs that were the opposite and mixed them together to make a desirable consistency.

You might be asking, "What happens if a kid doesn't bring in their dough?"  Actually it is not a problem since you will have lots of extra dough.  Because several of my students were going to be gone the last day before for Spring break, I decided to complete my models a day early.  I had 4 children (out of 20) who did not bring dough in, and we had plenty to share and even lots left over.  So no big deal, just another life lesson on sharing.
