Peggy, I think you should do it in the spring considering that they have moved into a new location, meaning give it some time for them to settle in to their new environment. Regardless, doing it during the spring time will help the plants grow at a faster pace than any other season as during the spring, it isn't raining too much or it isn't too hot like the summer. I honestly find the gardening...

Hilary, It would be best to have the students in groups so that way, there's no confusion as the students can each learn from each other in new, and different ways. You should create a voice level chart to keep the class structured. For example, no talking, whisper voice, table talk voice, and normal voice and have round lights next to each one and light up the voice level that you would like t...

5 Watermelon and Grape
In this chapter, the purpose of the assessment probe is to see the ideas of children with the subject: sink or float. The probe is created to find out if students think that size plays a big role when it comes to either sinking or floating. Some popular answers while doing an experiment on both a watermelon and grape to test in water whether or not each fruit will either sink or float is that “The watermelon will float” and “The grape will sink”. I feel like with the subject sink or float, students believe that the bigger the object is, the more it will float and the smaller it is, the more it will sink when really, it’s the opposite. It all has to do with the density of the object and how much greater it is than the water or not. For example, as stated by Page Keeley, “The density of a grape is greater than that of the water; therefore, it sinks.” Overall, what is important is for students to determine that the size alone of an object, doesn’t determine whether or not an object sinks or floats. By doing the experiment: Watermelon and Grape, that will provide them with the experience that big objects that float and small objects that sink, and vice versa. Considering that I’m a pre-service teacher, I really enjoyed reading this book chapter as it gives me ideas while conducting this experiment with kids. This is definitely a good book chapter to recommend to colleagues!
