Traditionally, science group roles have been pretty predictable (Leader, Materials Manager, Reporter, Recorder, Timekeeper, etc.) - roles which focus on the procedures and activities during an experiment or activity.
This kit includes 4 different thinking roles for students when working in a group (Prediction Manager, Evidence Technician, Research Specialist, and Skeptic)- roles which focus more on discussions, ideas, improvements, etc.
Print/copy, cut out, laminate, and fold to create a table tent identifying each group member's role for the activity.
These THINKING ROLE CARDS include suggested responsibilities for each group member during the investigation and during reporting, effectively keeping all members engaged and accountable throughout the entire process.
As an added bonus, the responsibilities fit well with a teacher guided science lab, a student led experiment, or a STEM challenge involving the steps of the Engineering Design Process. One product, multiple uses, flexibility, and cute too!!!
