Reflection: Journaling Does Everything Decompose? - Section 3: Wrap Up


This is one of the most exciting lessons of the year. The students really enjoy being able to see decomposition over time. They like to see the different types of molds and the different changes in sizes each product over time. Having students write their observations on a data recording sheets keeps their work organized and in one place. The students expressed that they liked having the recording sheets together in packet form because they had easy access to them and they had all of their observations together to compare them each day.
