It would be noisy, students will be talking and asking questions, taking notes and checking if their hypothesis is correct.
Jessica 3/4 Sterling El
55:05
Hands on! All students are working independently or in small groups to create their own product or conducting their own experiment. Students are all engaged and having fun!!

I was one of the curators and this resource is awesome
Trisha Herminghaus/K-12

@Evelyn… Three Dimensional Learning suggests using the #1)Practices of doing science and engineering, #2) the Crosscutting Concepts like Cause and Effect, etc… to help understand #3) the Disciplinary Core Ideas…

01:37:54
Where else have you seen fog?
Diane G., Anchorage
01:38:04
