## Reflection: Relevance What's Going On? - Section 4: Closing and Sharing

You may choose to teach this lesson and cover your math and science standards. In my math lesson,"What is Happening to the Little Brown Bat?", I focus more on the math standards of graph building. In this lesson, however, I focus on change over time and what it can tell us about our environment and it's future.

Think about creating the graphs during your math class, as I did, and then pulling them out and having detailed scientific conversations about what the data can teach your students. This is a fantastic way to get a lot done in a meaningful and connected way.
