Reflection: Flexibility Exploring a Lens - Section 1: First Observations


While students are in the bathroom making their initial eye observations they will also need water in ZipLoc bag. I have them do both! It makes my life easier if students are helping to set up their own experiments. It saves time and students get the first part of their experiment out of the way. I try to have them help as much as possible. It is hard to find the time to set up and I often try to find ways to involve students in the set up process.
