What Does It Mean?

One of our first assignments each year is for students to take a look at the North Carolina Standard Course of Study for 7th Grade Science and come up with an image to represent each of the six goals.  I call the activity “What Does it Mean?” and it gives us a good launching point to discuss some of the things we’ll be learning for the year. Here are a few pictures of some of this year’s “What Does it Mean?” responses:

    This is an awesome idea! Students learn what they are responsible for learning during the year and make sense of the goals with pictures and words. Love this idea.

    I love this idea! I think I may adapt it to use with my students next year for our Georgia 6th grade science standards. Plus, it will be a great way to get them started in their interactive science notebooks. Thank you so much for the great ideas!
