Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Fish, Vertebrates of the Sea - Section 4: Explore

 

Having my students work on the focus pages I created, really helped them understand the importance of noticing the differences in nature. They were able to make inferences based on the facts and the evidence they had gathered in their notes during this lesson. I really believe this would not have been as easy if they had not been given the visuals along with the facts.
