Reflection: Student Ownership Earth's Timeline - Section 4: Wrap Up with Pangaea


The kiddos were extremely proud of their Earth timelines and were excited to share them with their families. It just happened that after science, the students would be meeting with their reading buddies. I thought this would be good opportunity for students to share their timeline and share what they would say to their parents later that day.

Providing the opportunity for students to talk about their Earth timeline and recall what they learned, provided an authentic way for students to take ownership of their learning.
