Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Tools not Toys!!! - Section 4: Evaluate


The students did an amazing job at sorting out the tools and toys.  They noticed quickly, that there is a mistake in the assessment. The word balance scale was actually added on to the page two times.  This was definitely an oversight on my part, but they were able to brainstorm ways to make it work.  Each child found insightful ways to handle this I a viewed it as a great way to see what my students problem solving skills entailed.  For future lessons, I will make sure that I change that and take one 'balance scale' away.
