Reflection: Lesson Planning Conducting Investigations - Section 5: Evaluate


The next time I would teach this lesson, I would make sure that I would chart out the story and the scientific process more closely.  It made it a bit difficult because I had not done that prior to teaching the lesson.  I did a fairly good job thinking on my feet and pulling the scientific method out of the elements of the story, but it would have been easier if I had done it prior to the lesson.
