Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Building Our Habitat Diorama - Section 3: Explore/Build!


Before the children started building, I had them cover the background of their box first.  This worked out great, but I wished I would have done more.  I expected the children to fill in their background as they were working, but for most, it did not happen.  The children were so focused on their critters that they did not fill in the background details.  So next time I will have them cover their backgrounds and then add background details, such as trees and plants before moving on.  I think this would have given the children's project more dimension.
