Are your classroom walls purposeful?
"Science Connections wall" serves as reference for concepts covered in class and vocabulary.
This how it works:
. During or after a concept is introduced substances are placed in the shoe holder.
. Every time a question or misconception arises during instructional time I use the items to demonstrate their behavior or how the object works. Basically, is my easy access to show and tell without having a mess in the classroom
.⭐️ have access to explore its contents
.⭐️ allowed to bring items from home that connect to the concept covered in class
.⭐️ during tutorial sessions have the opportunity to explore and use the substances in case of misconception arises
So great in the science classroom because...
. About 65% of your students are visual learners. The wall helps them recall and make connections
. It reminds students of the concepts learned
. it connects to their background knowledge
. expand students’ knowledge about topics being studied
. it displays fresh and useful tools and objects needed in science class
