Reflection: Lesson Planning Glacial Erosion - Section 3: Explore


I wanted to plan an investigation that permitted all students to be engaged with The Scientific Method while using science process skills. When students collaborated in groups, some students tended to be more aggressive with the investigation. Often, the passive students did not provide feedback or were not engaged in the investigation. As a result, the guided inquiry permitted all students to fill out a lab sheet which provided them with an opportunity to take ownership of their own learning. Also, the guided inquiry lesson allowed me to review how The Scientific Method should be conducted.
