Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Telephones - Section 2: Engage

 

Prior to starting the investigation.  I want to remind the students of the previous day's lesson and discussion.  It is important to review concepts and guide children into making connections to prior knowledge.  For many, these are "big concepts" and connecting to previous learning will need to be guided and practiced.
