Reflection: Continuous Assessment Eco-friendly Construction Materials - Section 3: Developing Eco-Friendly Material Solutions


As students complete the graphic organizer, I walk around the room checking their work and talking to them. I want to know if they understand why the material is eco-friendly. They sometimes forget about former lessons. I ask them about their experiences in the heat transfer investigations in an effort to help students make the connection between the material and the investigation.
