Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Seeing in Science : The skill of observation - Section 4: Evaluate


Originally, I felt the students would be able to complete the Process Grid in their teams, however, I quickly discovered that this was going to be a more difficult challenge than I first anticipated. Because it was still early in the year, they were still not as adept at working together as I had hoped.  I quickly needed to regroup and come up with a new plan.  

I adjusted the process grid to a more simpler version and found I had much more success. Because I did this, I had to leave the lesson after this point and come back to it the next day.  When I returned to it the next day, the children were able to complete the process grid with their own ideas and observations independently.  

I saw this as growth.  Remembering that the art of working with others is a slowly acquired skill.
