Reflection: Online Resources Scientists Observe: Wiggly Worms Day 2 - Section 4: Exploration


Today, I chose to create a flipchart to enhance the flow of the lesson.  It is very easy to flip from one page to the next, and click on the embedded links.  This allows us to quickly move from one online source to another, from texts to videos, to slides with our essential questions.  Also, the use of an Elmo projector's zoom capacity lets me project the mealworms at the size of a first grader!  It's almost like "Attack of the Mega-mealworms!"  Lastly, my school has stereoscopes, or two-eyed microscopes.  I leave them out in my classroom science area year-round.  They are just perfect for getting up close and personal with mealworms!
