October 22, 2014: First Grade on Waves
Waves are introduced in first grade in the topics of both light and sound. We will highlight the instruction students will need in order to plan and conduct investigations to determine the effect of placing objects made with different materials in the path of a beam of light. We will use videos of actual classrooms to demonstrate that first graders can do very cool science. Using video examples, participants will be able to visualize the first graders in their school doing science around waves.

Hi! I "attended" this webinar and cannot find the cool KWL chart that was presented. I wanted to use it in class. Thanks for any help!

I noticed that they do not have the pdf up for this presentation . Here is a link to the resource collection for NGSS First Grade. I looked through some of the resources and could not find the KWL used . I am going to send a message to presenter to see if we can get it for you
I went through the presentation. Wondering if you meant the KLEWS Chart?
Here is a screenshot of it from the presentation

This was a fantastic webinar. I am a college student taking an Elementary Science Methods course right now, where we are learning about NGSS and NSTA resources. Learning the ropes has proven to be a challenging task, but entirely worth it in the end! The reason I enjoyed this webinar in particular is the thoroughness of the explanation of the NGSS standards. It's a great reminder no matter what stage of the learning process you're at. I also enjoyed the KLEWS chart - I grew up using KWL charts in school. They dull in comparison to what KLEWS has to offer. It's great that the students get to propel their own learning in a way that makes sense, or flows, for their minds. I'd love to learn more about experiences with KLEWS charts - have they proven to be useful? How often do you utilize them (at the start of every unit, only a few times a year, etc.)? Thank you for a great resoruce!
