Trip report from Megan Hayes.
(See below for a collage of images taken during the visit.)
Today we visited Kariya Junior high School where we watched a very hands-on science inquiry lesson with the students.
They were presented with the problem of identifying unidentified gases in three canisters. The students were totally engaged as they worked in small groups to come up with ways to test each gas then make statements about which gas was stored based on their findings.
They were even asked to give themselves a rating related to their participation throughout the lesson.
Fantastic self-reflection strategies on show!
