Reflection: Checks for Understanding I Hear That! - Section 7: Evaluate


It's important to check for basic understanding of science concepts as you go throughout the year. In this lesson, I want to make sure that my kids have a basic understanding of their senses so that they can effectively use them in order to make observations that will lead to higher order learning.

At this age, they do not need to have a full understanding of how their senses work, but they do need to have a basic understanding of how each sense is utilized and how, when used together, makes a stronger experience of observation.

I Hear That!

Unit 1: Getting Started (Frontloading Science)
Lesson 4 of 9

Objective: SWBAT identify sounds that different animals make by covering their eyes and listening to a CD (tape).

Big Idea: Young children do not often come equipped and ready to listen well in order to gain insight into topics. This lesson encourages them to listen carefully and make connections between what they hear and things they already know.
