## Reflection: Lesson Planning Collecting and Recording Push and Pull Data - Section 4: Discuss

After teaching this lesson, I realized that I had the perfect opportunity to connect it back to literacy--so I did! We are learning to state our opinion and provide reasons in writing (Common Core State Standard W.1.1), so I asked my students to write their opinion about the racetrack lessons. Check out their work! I think the lessons were seen as a huge success by the students - and I thought they were great because of the awesome on-task behavior and the conversation and student work that really showed that the students understood the objectives!
