Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Conducting Crayfish Experiments - Section 3: Closure

 

As I've worked on each unit this year, I've tried to facilitate my students developing their own experimental questions.  It seems as though many of their questions they would write when I assigned them as closure were simple research questions.  I decided to classify the questions into research and experimental questions for this unit, with the hope that they would be able to quickly find the answers to their research questions, leaving us with some meaty questions that can't be found online.
