High levels of learning are the result of high levels of student engagement. Yesterday, I had the pleasure of spending time in a third grade classroom that had a lot of wonderful student engagement as the children learned about the three branches of government.
Students had researched, written and shared notes about the three branches of government on this color-coded graphic organizer.
They referred to the graphic organizer and different texts to determine answers to to a categorizing game led by their teacher. The teacher provided some clues, and the children had to identify the branch of government.
The children were excited to share their responses and referred to specific evidence they found in texts to justify their responses.
I'm very proud of the childrens' persistence, attention to detail and teamwork!
