Reflection: Classroom Setup Motion and Molecules - Section 2: Water Molecules in Motion


Students are going to be moving around the room during the activity and to help control it I am going to move the desks within the classroom. I want to control the engagement, learning, and safety of the activity and moving the desks will give me a specific area for students to move within. I create a large rectangle out of the desks with an opening at the top and bottom. Now students that participate will have a distinct area to do so in. I can monitor the activity and other students who have a viewing area to engage in the learning even if they are not acting it out at the time.
