Reflection: Checks for Understanding Presenting Our Findings! - Section 2: Presentations


I developed this lesson to create an environment through this investigation that would allow them to develop collaborative skills, investigate "layers" of rock and what could be found in them, and then guide them to pull that all together to create a presentation that communicated their findings . I think it was successful. We can now move onto the meat of the unit where they will learn about how the earth's layers show change over time through the types of fossils that are found in them. I think this three day lesson has taught them that thinking, questioning and collaborating is all part of scientific inquiry. The freedom they had to develop their own ideas of the experience during this times was priceless.

I can't wait for them to find out that those imprints of fish are not painted by caveman.
