Reflection: Writing Across the Disciplines Adapting and Camouflage - Section 4: Connecting Content


To wrap up all that they did, I ask them to add a journal entry to their science journal. Within their journal I ask them to reflect on all that they have learned. It does not need to be a formal writing assignment but a reflection. You can then use this to assess what each student gained from the lesson and if they could connect this to the adaptation of camouflage.
