Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge What's the Difference? Rivers, Streams, Lakes and Ponds... - Section 4: Explain

 

I am excited when we have this conversation because many of the children bring in the information they remember learning about the wave motion during the ocean unit.  They are quick to remind me that the wave doesn't really move in the same way as the river moves. They tell me that the wave moves in a circular motion and that it is the currents under the waves that move.  They explain to me that the rivers and streams move like this.  Wow!!!
