Where does this lesson fit in with your curriculum (if the lesson is not a fit for the class you teach, how could the lesson be modified so that it is applicable to your curriculum)?
This lesson does fit in with some of the grade 3 and grade 3 stem. However, I would do this as a microbit expt or maybe a rasp pi. The wiring makes me nuts.
Which part or parts of the lesson would your students need extra support in order to be successful?
The wiring. I would need someone who can actually see to help. It would also really help to have those labels that you can get for Pi on the breadboard.
If you were to teach this lesson to your class, describe your role during the class. What does a successful teacher actively do during this lesson?
I would ask students to explain what was happening and why. I would challenge them to make a change in the code or the breadboard and predict what would happen. I might also offer some other resistors- what difference will they make
If you were to teach this lesson to your class, describe your student’s role during the class. What does “student success” look like?
The kids would work in pairs. Success is lighting up the board and explaining what is going on.
