This article reinforces everything I am being taught as an upcoming teacher and shows how to implement these familiar strategies into a lesson. It shows how to engage students by allowing them to talk with each other and demonstrate playing as a scientific discussion. They were able to use their previous schema and show how science is in everyday life! I loved the emphasis of using props and visuals to help ELLs and small-group work especially allows for deeper engagement and allows for the individual students to think more critically for themselves.

I thoroughly enjoyed this article. It provided a great example of how to teach force, motion, etc. I also really appreciated the detail that was given in each of the 5 E's. I am still learning about how to make an effective lesson plan. I always overthink and this article showed me that you can make something that seems so complicated, so simple, yet still so effective. I loved the opening where the teacher asked the kids about what things they play and I appreciated the inclusion on why this lesson also benefits ELL students. Thank you so much for the share! I will be saving this article!
