Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Plant Parts: Leaves Day 2 - Section 3: Explore

 

Photosynthesis can be a difficult concept for students to understand.  In this case, the guest speaker had the students act it out.  This is something that we had discussed prior to him coming in.  It was beneficial for them to act it out and try out the different roles of the process.  Before I had the students write in their notebooks, I had them act it out a few more times.  I felt the review was good and it allowed them to act out the different parts.
