Reflection: Student Self-Assessment Predators of the Sea......Gentle or Fierce? - Section 3: Explain


I get so excited when the students make these leaps on their own.  I work hard to set the connections up and always hope that the students will pick up on them.  Sometimes, the connections will just go right on by and the children do not even realize that one has just passed them by.  Other times, the connections are so clear, they can barely contain their excitement.  These are those moments I live for.  

During this lesson, when I taught the children about the brackish waters, they were so excited to leap back to the whale lesson and the area where whales may swim into that leaves the open ocean.  In the Pacific Northwest, that area tends to be the Puget Sound.  The children made this connection on their own and easily.  It was exciting.
