Observe and Infer - Picture of the Week

(0)
All young scientists need to practice making careful observations and evidence-based inferences. With this product, you will get a complete year of Picture of the Week activities for students to strengthen these skills. Students are shown an image and spend time making careful observations. After this, they make inferences based on these observations. This would be a great warm-up exercise or a great addition to your weekly classroom routine. You will begin to see your students become more careful observers and you will hear them correcting their classmates when they are including biases or previous experiences in their observations. Students will begin supporting all of their thoughts with evidence (the mark of a great scientist!) Detailed teacher instructions on best ways to implement this into your weekly routine are included as well as some teaching tips. You will also receive all of the student print-outs for the 38 weeks and slides for projecting the Picture of the Week for 38 weeks in both PDF and PowerPoint formats. This product will not only make your students better scientists, but better writers, readers, and speakers. The language arts teachers will love you!

Moon Phases Reciprocal Learning Activity

Moon Phases Reciprocal Learning Activity

(0)
This reciprocal learning activity gives students the opportunity to practice identifying and predicting moon phases. It also includes some information on the positions of the Sun and moon as they effect tides. The product also includes some bonus material that students can use prior to this activity to make sure they are comfortable and familiar with the moon phases when the Sun is located on the right side of the diagram and the left side of the diagram. What is the Reciprocal Learning Strategy? Reciprocal Learning is a student-pairing strategy designed with the principles of effective coaching in mind. Each pair of students forms a learning partnership committed to helping each other reach a particular learning goal. Each student plays two roles: as the player, each student works to complete an activity or solve a problem while “thinking out loud”; as a coach, each student observes the player’s work and listens to the player’s thinking while providing praise, feedback, and clues that help the player complete the activity. Because of these dual-roles, the power of learning is effectively doubled. In this activity, each player is given 12 unique problems to solve as their coach guides, encourages, and provides support when needed. After these 12 problems are completed (and correct), the students switch roles and the second player solves 12 different problems as the other player coaches.
