Mrs. Cressandra Layne's Science Class
6th Grade students in Mrs. Layne's class worked in small groups and created different graphic organizers illustrating the different forms of energy. Some of the students created additional illustrations to accompany the graphic organizers to help them remember key vocabulary terms. Students "taught" the class after they completed the assignment - and shared what they learned about energy. They included many triggers and process skills within their lesson.
