Reflection: Real World Applications What is the Scientific Method? - Section 5: Wrap Up


In this wrap up activity I chose to have students read an article about an experiment that was done in the real world.  I chose an experiment that would be something familiar to the students so that it would interests them.  The article is short enough that the ELL and ESE students can read it independently and be successful as well. I feel that it is important for students to be exposed to situations where the knowledge they are learning in class, is used in the real world.  Having them read nonfiction articles also allows them to practice strategies they are using in language arts and to help them see there is a connection between subjects.
