Learning Through Teaching
Seventh grade science students have been studying viruses. As part of their lesson, they were presented with a challenge: to work in groups to construct a working model of a virus that will help teach younger students. Through the process of creating their model, the older students learned that by taking a complex idea and putting it into a simpler form for younger students to understand, they were able to better understand it themselves. Once the models were complete, they had a wonderful time sharing them with our kindergarten students!
