Reflection: Intervention and Extension Monomers and Polymers - Flipped (Day 2) - Section 3: Explore


Most of the students will not get to part three of this experiment in the time that we have in class.  In order to make sure that my students will always have something "sciency" to work on, I add extra elements to assignments.  My students know that there is never a dull moment in science and as much as I enjoy reading and want my students to be readers, they never need to pull out their silent reading books in science.  

Using the Chromebooks allows me to have extra online activities ready for the students and when we work on labs, I am able to add extension pieces.  I do not tell my students until the last day that part three is an extension because I want them to stay on task and focus on staying on pace in the lab.  Because this lab is online in Classroom ( , the students always have access to it and may work on the last section whenever they like.  This is also a great way to reach out to students who enjoy working on science activities in their spare time.
