Reflection: Checks for Understanding How Fossil Records add to Our Understanding Day 2 Biodiversity - Section 4: Explore


The rubric I created focused not only on the accuracy of the information, but the group dynamic as well. Working collaboratively is an acquired skill that will be used throughout the students' years in school and then in the workplace. They must work on staying focused on the task at hand if they are to be successful.

  The rubric worked as a guide throughout the activity.
