Tutorial

Flipped Lesson Plan

This inquiry based lesson will remain the same with the following exceptions:
the "engage" component of the lesson will instead be the "flipped classroom" piece where students use this Sophia tutorial to learn about the water cycle. Instead of the teacher reading the students "Wet All Over" (Magic School Bus), the students will watch the video at home. Students will come to class prepared with relevant vocabulary, introduced in my "where does water come from" video, so that we can go right into the "explore" science activity (Water Cycle Bag).
