Instead of planning a second research lesson, the biology group opted to spend another full day at the Birch Aquarium with Melanie Villanueva and Cheryl Peach, revising their first semester lesson. Cristina Trecha, the director of the San Diego Science Project, spent some time with the group as well! Unlike the math groups, which could debrief and revise their lessons in an hour or two, the biology lesson required several hours to revise due to the variety of materials involved: data, photos, powerpoint slides, and maps. The biology group had a great day planning on February 1, 2014 and are ready to reteach the lesson on February 26, 2014 at Mar Vista High School.
Check back soon for updated research lesson dates and for artifacts from second semester lessons!
