Reflection: Earth Rocks! - Section 3: Wrap Up


The partner discussions are a great way for me to quickly listen to students as they grapple with new information and concepts.   I can correct partners if needed, but many times, partners end up correcting each other.  It is also very helpful for students to verbalize what they learned in the lesson and make sense of new knowledge.
