Reflection: High Expectations Forces and Friction - Section 3: Investigation


It is difficult to know what to explain to first graders and what to omit sometimes. I lean towards explaining more instead of less, hoping that some of my students will benefit from the 'more' part. So, when I am explaining an investigation or activity, I want to make sure my students have lots of information. In this example, I explain why I chose the board eraser as the tester for the static friction. Simplisticly, I knew it would not move as easily on most surfaces--but I gave a more detailed explanation to tie in the new vocabulary for students.
