Reflection: Flexibility Touchy, Touchy! Part One - Section 5: Closing part one


Don't panic and be flexible!!

This lesson was originally written with all 7e's in to be done in one day. That did not happen! I had to stop half way into the lesson and pick it up where we left off the next day. The touch bags took much longer than I had anticipated because the kids were so into it. And that is OKAY!! I want them to get the most they can out of these science experiences. There is never a rush.

I had to go back and break the lesson up and strengthen the extension experience in part two and it was well worth the flexibility and the effort as you can see by the many videos and photos available for this one.

  Oops!! I needed two days for the touch lesson!
