Reflection: Adjustments to Practice How Can Wind Change the Shape of the Land? - Section 3: Explore


I chose to do this as a whole class investigation since I wanted to control the blowing of sand to keep everyone safe.  I also just had enough goggles for a few kids.  However, if you have the materials and extra "hands on deck", you might want to consider doing this as a partner activity.

Doing this as a class proved to be successful but I feel there is a different and wonderful part of learning that takes place when an activity is done in partner groups.
