Cleaning out my garden last night I was inspired to make a new station today.. The investigation Station. Got some tweezers, magnifying glasses, pencil, paper and tape. The flowers from my garten were the subject of investigation this time.
1st-grade students were instructed they could not work at this station without watching the video of what the station was all about. It was the first time using a QR code in my class. They knew what to do because of their awesome Media/Tech teacher last year.
They were very excited to bring home their little treasures. How simple is this? They get to know the anatomy of flowers through self-discovery. That is a good thing for sure. This will be a repeat station. It wasn't the interest of all... but it was for a good handful.
