Introducing my favorite of all the student-directed activities that I use: "SPOT THE LITTLE SCIENTIST"!
For all of you science teachers out there that are looking for a new activity to introduce to get your students talking, take a look at this!
"Spot the Little Scientist" is guaranteed to bring some excitement into your lessons!
You just print the little Scientists, write a CORE IDEA or ESSENTIAL QUESTION on the back, post it in a discreet location, and wait for a student to find it.
They then become the facilitators of a class discussion! It may take them a while to get warmed up to the idea of not having the teacher involved in their discussions, but trust me--when they do, it is amazing to see!
***DISCLAIMER: This is NOT GUARANTEED to engage your students in lively and completely independent discussions--but it is DEFINITELY, 100% worth a try! I can only speak for my kids, and they loved it! Try it out today!
**Clipart and fonts are original!
I hope you LOVE my little Scientists as much as I do!
