Reflection: Student Feedback Measurement: The skill of how long, how big, how small, how much? - Section 5: Investigation


In no way was I prepared for the level of excitement the students would have with this investigation. They were so excited with the results and the activity after gathering the data and comparing the results.  They wanted to leave the butterfly in the water for a few more days and continue to check it and the changes in the data.  

So we planned to measure and compare data for a few more days.  Wow!! Who would have thought?
