Reflection: Lesson Planning Creating A Model For Seed Dispersal - Section 2: Setting the Scene


Sometimes it is necessary to revise a lesson plan on the go. Originally this lesson was set up  for students to work in partners to create their models. As I was dropping the seeds around the room, I could see that students were excited about the upcoming project. They were ready with their ideas about how they would build a model. I decided on the spot to have them work individually. Each student had an idea about how he/she could build something to spread seeds, the way an animal does. I did not want to stop their creative ideas and so I decided mid-lesson, to let the students work individually. 

It is always important to be ready to adapt a lesson to the needs and excitement of the students in the classroom.
