Reflection: Data Analysis Contributing to Movement - Section 4: Wrap Up


This lesson is not as hands on as other lessons. This lesson primarily is talking to the students and activating their background knowledge about how wheels work. Many students could not tell in the beginning the difference between a wheel and a tire. Overall the lesson went great, however I believe that the students preferred a more hands-on lesson. After reviewing their journal entries, it was evident that the students were proficient in their understanding of wheels and tires in addition to analyzing how all the parts work together to cause motion.
