Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Dive like a Newt - Section 4: Explain


I find that when I really want to make sure my students don't forget what I have taught them I need to create a station: matching animal to defense game where they can revisit the skill. In my morning reading routine I have four stations where the students engage in activities we have already practiced. This is activity I think my students will enjoy and will help them remember about the animals we have studied.

The game is like memory. I would print two copies. I like to keep the answers in the station just in case my students need to check one they forgot.  For the game they place all cards face down. The students turn two cards over and try to find the match. The match has either the matching animal or the correct defense on the card.
