How I Use It
I have used it to supplement the learning we have done in science and social studies units. I group students and go over the tasks with them very clearly. We then go over the products that are required for students to create as a result of the activity. Students are then given ample amounts of time to complete the activity.
My Take
I think it is a really great teaching tool. For teachers who are overwhelmed by the idea of doing an inquiry unit it is a great introduction to that as it is more constructed and doesn't allow students to go off on as many different avenues.
