Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Busy Bees - Section 2: Jigsaw Research With Books


"Aha" moments in researching always is a highlight of my day. Roving and talking to students about bees and what amazed them was one way for me to really assess their skimming and scanning skills as well as be able to grasp how well they could research as a team. The conceptual understanding that the standards demands is easily introduced in this lesson. It is a great way to start the unit!
