Putting the Pieces Together: Supporting Synthesis Discussions in K-2 Science Classrooms

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Imagine that you facilitated an activity where students talked excitedly while they worked to figure out why toys move in different ways. They return to the rug for a discussion that you are hoping allows them to find patterns and connect to the phenomenon. But how do you move beyond their noticings? In this session, we will use a lesson from our freely available NGSS-aligned SOLID Start curriculum to model ways to support K-2 students in synthesizing within and across lesson activities. You will leave this session with resources and strategies to facilitate synthesis discussions among your students.
