Reflection: Complex Tasks What's Up with the Water Cycle? - Section 4: Water Cycle Poster


It was a challenge for students to pull the key words from the USGS web site and use these to create their own sentences. My students need more practice pulling out the key words before I ask them to do this on their own.

When I teach this lesson again, as a whole group activity, we will pull the key words from each definition on the USGS website. The key words will be posted on the board and then students can create their sentences from the key words.

I taught this lesson with another class the next week. I worked with the whole group to pull key words for sun and evaporation. This helped a lot, but students still struggled with the skill when they tried it on their own the last 2 labels. I think it would help for them to have a more solid concept of how temperature changes the state of mater.
