Reflection: Pacing How Do We Hear? Day 1 - Section 4: Closing


When my students have exciting materials, an exciting idea and the creative energy, science can go by the wayside easily. I have found that fighting the playful atmosphere to force scientific concepts or pushing it doesn't work. Children need the time to play, discover and release that energy first. Then, it's time to talk science. That is why this lesson is in two parts. It works. Don't rush.
