Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Planning Independent Electromagnet Experiments - Section 1: Introduction


Having students write down their questions is a common closure method with science notebooks, but it is important to use those questions for something, not just leave them sitting in a notebook.  Before moving away from any broad unit, I always try to set aside a day or two for students to practice working together to investigate their own questions.  This has the potential to enrich their understanding of the particular content, and really strengthens the broader skill of using the scientific method to learn more about the world around them.
