Reflection: High Quality Task Introducing Unseen Forces - Section 3: Activity


Part of this lesson is for my students to experiment without me giving away all the answers! Watch as my students experiment and I carefully avoid just answering their questions in their "Metal and Magnets Discovery". I wanted my students to come away from the lesson with more questions than they started with, so I had to work really hard to not just provide answers. That, to me, is part of a high quality task - when students are truly engaged in scientific thinking and they begin to understand that asking the questions is as important as answering the questions. Also, the fact that the teacher does NOT have to have all of the answers!

Introducing Unseen Forces

Unit 11: Forces and Motion: Magnets and Unseen Forces
Lesson 1 of 6

Objective: SWBAT investigate magnets and record their initial discoveries.

Big Idea: To find out what students know--I ask them! Then, they investigate and find out some important discoveries on their own!
