Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Rolling Down the River - Part 2 - Section 3: Let's Make a Map


Most teams were able to explain their land form and river sections, but this information was not as evident when they made their labels to go on their map section. I think I should scaffold the label making by directing the teams to write their land form and river explanations on the back of the map section so that I can clarify any ambiguities before students make their map labels.

When I checked in with groups, I did not utilize the questions noted in this section. I tended to ask, "What river parts or landforms are you working on?" Next time I will print the questions in this section and assign one question for each team to answer. Their answers can be posted with their river map.
