Reflection: Lesson Planning Water Waves - Section 2: Water Play


When bringing water into the classroom specific reminders on the expectations of the class is vital. The set up also might need to be ready for them ahead of time and it might not be best to have students help out. I filled the tubs while students were at recess and brought each group their water. I also asked them to sit on the floor with their bucket to help prevent major disasters.
