Last week I organised an assembly for the entire seventh grade class about what we are doing in science. We gathered in the Chevron Theatre to listen to a guest speaker talk to us about how Lake Nichada works.

The students were expected to make connections between the aquariums and terrariums that they assembled and monitored in class to a real life example of an artificially created ecosystem: Lake Nichada.

Knowing how difficult it can be for seventh graders to draw parallel relationships, I decided to help them bridge the gap between concrete and abstract. I did this using powerpoint techniques that I’ve picked up through this course (see my slide share) and used photographs taken from CC.
