ZOO EXHIBIT PBL

In this PBL students incorporated many STEM Concepts. They focused on creating electronic presentations that incorporated biology, geology, geography and  history. Students demonstrated knowledge of what it takes to put an actual zoo exhibit together.  They were divided into four roles (climatologist, zoologist, botanist and geologist) in which each job is needed the other to complete their part in the PBL.

STEM PBL ECLIPSE PBL 2017

 

We started of the school year with an amazing phenomena that provided a great opportunity for a Launch. This project entwined Science, Engineering and Technology concepts when students had to create a model and a digital presentation over the process of an eclipse and explain it through figurative language to a younger audience.

This walkthrough focuses on my strengths of promoting deep reading comprehension as well as my ability  to facilitate stations with a deep understanding of content. 

21st Century Skills

 

I have found that implementing Content Specific Roles in the classroom not only help hold accountability for group members, but also introduces real science oriented Careers helping prepare them for 21st Century Skills.

4th grade TIMESHARE GROUP ROLES.docx

I also help the students break apart these roles to further their understanding of the 21st Century Skills to begin the research process using DOK levels. 

Here are some examples of the questions we created as a class to help them begin the research and hold accountability for each role.

Planned Learning Committee

 

I have met with my  grade level Content Team on Wednesdays of this year to discuss the best way help our students by discussing students and classroom management, analyzing student data, PBL reflections, and sharing professional development ideas with our team members.
