One of My EXCLUSIVE Project Based Unit with 3 Main Parts: Think, Do, and Create
This electricity unit is one of a kind. Students need to engage with the material in order to learn it. If the teacher is doing all the talking, the children are not the ones doing the learning. Keep your teacher input part to a minimum with this unit.
This product covers the material making the students dig for the information, prove their understanding, and aids them in independent learning. This unit is set up for you step by step. I used it a few times, fixed it up, and learned from my mistakes to bring you a unit that will run itself smoothly.
There are three main parts.
1. The student research LOG (INTERACTIVE research in a half page booklet *to save paper)
-Students use TASK CARDS (hands-on inquiry experiments) and internet resources to complete the log.
2. The student has to comprehend the new material and become the expert by completing a step by step OUTLINE that will be used to create a SLIDESHOW presentation.
3. The students have the knowledge, the format, and the directions to create a SLIDESHOW to present to the class.
