WIDE RANGE OF ABILITY LEVELS! Predicated on the fact that the instructor determines the difficulty level of the whole activity or part of the activity based on what information is given and what information is not as well as how verbal questions are presented to the student(s).
This has been used on travelling science days with high marks and acclaim.
Can be infused so learners that need an alternative assessment or may struggle with standard activities/labs/assessments have such an engaging option.
This activity has been used in all levels: special education to advanced learners (even honors).
Perfect for homeschooling!
