Reflection: Student Ownership Scientists Observe: Wiggly Worms Day 2 - Section 1: Instructional Notes


In a cool coincidence, one of my students found a larva on the playground!  I encourage students to add to our classroom science center, so we brought it in.  This helps students feel ownership of the learning and the classroom.  What's really cool is that when we made animal models the next day, this student decided to make a model of a larva!  That was a first!
