Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Biomes - Let the Research Begin! - Section 4: Lesson Closer


This is the first year I have asked the kids to come up with a teaser, and now I wish I would have video taped them!  The were amazing!  I think having to design a teaser helped deepen their understanding.  One of the teasers was "Don't get your feet wet as we learn about beaver dams and lodges in the wettest of the wetlands in Utah."  Very clever!
