4th grade Lesson: Investigating the model

The fourth grade lesson has been my favorite lesson this year. It consist of 3 rotations that I got to engage with 2 of out the 3. In the last post, I added a picture of the model we used. The model was used for the students to observe and learn how to see signs that animals have been in certain places. Usually, animals leave scat or food prints behind, this causes us to have a clue of what kind of animals are close by in our environment. The students can pick up parts of the model as long as the put them back where they found them. I think physically touching and looking at the model gets them excited to engage in the activity.
