Reflection: Lesson Planning Adapting and Camouflage - Section 2: Let's Be Birds


It is often tricky to get materials for specific experiments. This is more true when the materials are not part of a kit or science box. In order to obtain the cloth for the experiment I asked for donations from families, and in this case one family had a quilter in their household. She provided me with various colors of scrap pieces she had. I told her about the size I needed and the floral type pattern that would work best. Asking ahead of time for materials can really be beneficial and keep the expenses down.
