Reflection: Joy Water Erosion - Section 3: Explore


In observing my junior scientists, I was elated to observe them work productively with each other. As I walked around, the scientists set up their experiment as I had modeled previously.  The demonstration allowed the scientists to take ownership of their own learning with little assistance from me. The students worked collaboratively to complete their water erosion investigation. The leaders made sure everyone played a role by taking turns.
