Student Work Examples

Class Summary Table

A class summary table is used as a “public record for student thinking.” The summary table is great way for students to keep track of what they’ve been learning throughout the unit- new concepts, observations, and connections to their schoolyards or communities. Students can use the summary table to help them construct their final explanations of the unit’s phenomenon.

Student Journals

Individual student journals are a great way for students to take notes, record their thoughts, and reflect back no previous lessons. These journals can include observations, data, predictions, and drawings. Student worksheets can also be stapled in to their journals for safekeeping.
