Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Light Fountain - Section 3: Explore


I find using a model to help my students write the plan very helpful, but students who are new to the class are still confused: student confusion. So, I explain this is list of steps, and we number steps in a list. If we were writing a paragraph explaining our steps we would put one sentence after the other. 

Another thing I could have done to save time is print off the plan and let the students paste it in their science journal. They need to have documentation of what we did, so they can reflect on it in later lessons. I wish I had made a copy for my students that write slower, so they would not have been slowed down by their handwriting.
