Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Compare parts of different plant - Section 6: Evaluate


The students consistently want to apply their prior knowledge to their solution. In the animal unit we did a few months ago we studied how how electric fences or just any fence could help deer stay away from the road. This would fix the problem of cars hitting deer. 

Today this group seemed to want to reflect upon their knowledge of animals instead of apply their new knowledge of plants. You can see how I question: presentation and evaluation
