I really liked this article! I think the lesson was very engaging for students because it was hands-on. It explored a topic that students were very interested in. I think the teacher did a great job of picking sources that helped the students connect the information. I believe the videos used throughout the lesson really helped the students. The different learning styles used helped to make this lesson engaging for everyone.

I enjoyed reading the article because it makes the students learn about something that they are interested in. It is important for the teacher to engage the students in the way that they did. Learning about how polar live was interesting for the students because it is an animal that they probably do not see often or know very little about. The teacher also used the 5E lesson to let students explore more about the polar bears. The teacher only facilitated the lesson while the students did most of the work and research about the polar bears.
