Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Introduction to Crayfish - Section 3: Active Engagement


You have noticed, I am sure, that I did not type much by way of lesson plans.  This is because, by design, I did not speak much today at all.  

I have said before, "Those that talk, learn" and I try to live that with my class as much as possible. Today, I created an opportunity that was of high interest and would create a safe environment to share ideas.  

As students become more confident in their observational skills, their questioning and debating grows as well! 

Many may feel like they are not teaching by standing back, but think about what we do when we want our babies to walk…we back up and let them do it!
