Reflection: Cells 'R Us Work Day 1 - Section 2: Work Day


Students unfamiliar with project based learning might take the relative freedom of a work day as an indication that there is not much to be done.

 What are the steps you expect  to take?

 Resources you have to  accomplish this step

 Date it needs to be  done by





This section makes the students realize that a complete project does not happen in one day, and that in order to be successful, they must take responsibility for every moment they have.
