Reflection: Exit Tickets Interactions Within Earth's Atmosphere - Section 4: Explore-Explain


An idea to wrap up this lesson could be the use of an exit ticket strategy where you ask students to respond to two sentence starters...

I used to think......Now I think......

Frame this into the context of a throughline around change in greenhouse emission over time: "What are greenhouse emissions and why do they matter?"

Give students time to reflect and write at the end of class. As a teacher, you use their responses as formative assessments and look for patterns of student understanding. For students, this experience is a reflection on how their own thinking has changed.
