Today we spent time adding finishing touches to our science ‘projects’. Knowing they had to identify, describe, and explain a variety of information about electrical energy, students selected a means of communication they felt would be effective. The students generated ideas that include: a model (e.g. museums, an ‘ElectriCity’), brochures, a children’s story, newscast, a cartoon, report, drawing, and a science show.
To work on fluency and expression today, we did some science based Reader’s Theatre, where groups rehearsed their roles as electrons.
