        Abdul Amunikoro published a blog post Week 10 Response in the group Group A
        I felt a personal relation to two of the articles, so I felt best to reference my experience in my own life as opposed to the classroom.  Hotchkiss and Hougen's article stood out to me as it provided a career-oriented model for how...

            You have already designed a lesson plan that addresses a science topic of your choice for a grade level of your choice.  Now, we want to zoom in a bit to clarify some parts of this plan. So, you are doing to do the following: 1. Identify...

              I just realized this looks like a 1st or 2nd grade lesson. This book I choose is more so about the colors of the rainbow, I think I'm going to swap it out for a more "sciency" approach that is more suitable for the 4th grade.

                Rochelle, Thanks for submitting your lesson. I would suggest a more hands on approach to such as "dynamic" topic.

                    Kat, This is an interesting lesson plan. I am wondering how you could depth to this lesson. Right now, they are learning something and then need to repeat it. How could you extend that?

                      Michael, This is a perennial favorite.  For your learning objectives, you say that students should be able to name which objects will sink and which will float. Is there anything else you want them to learn?

                          Mikaela, This is a solid lesson idea. I have a question about assessment. It looks like you are asking the children to copy what the teacher has done. How will you know that they understand it?

                            Jackie, This is a really interesting idea. I don't know the book, but imagine you do and that it's a good fit. My only question is about whether this is too much to do in one lesson. What do you think?
