Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Food Webs - Section 4: Explore


Identifying Errors 

Groups began the gallary walk at their own poster.  You can see in the food web gallary walk - identifying errors that students are analyzing their own poster and identifying errors.  I decided after this group that if I were do this lesson over, I would give them a chance to make corrections.  Because this group had so many errors, it was difficult for other groups to record many food chains while at this poster.   

I had a lot of questions when groups came to this poster.  In order to help groups identify errors in their own poster as well as in others, I have adjusted the Identifying Food Chains within a Food Web - Revised worksheet to include a section for errors.  Groups will begin at their poster and look it over for any errors.  They will then rotate to the other posters and can record errors here as they fill in food chains.  I think having this section will benefit students because they are often asked to identify the errors in a food web on state testing.
