K - 2nd Grade Science: GEMS Mystery Festival
After planning and implementing a 5E lesson with three pre-service teachers that was adapted from a GEMS basal, I helped to plan and implement the K - 2 room in a community event, "Super Science Saturday". During the day of the event, I helped lead a group of approximately 50 students from grades K - 2 through a simulated crime, "The Case of the Missing Bear." Students used inquiry skills, observation skills, and made conclusions during a simulated crime scene and during five centers-based experiments.
