Graphic organizers, pictures, video, games and charts can all serve as scaffolding tools. Graphic organizers are very specific in that they help students visually represent their ideas, organize information, and grasp concepts such as sequencing and cause and effect. A graphic organizer shouldnt be The Product, but rather its a scaffolding tool that helps guide and shape the students thinking so that they can apply it. Word Web

Instead, introduce the words to students in photos, and in context to things they know and are interested in. create a symbol or drawing for each word and give time for discussion of the words (small and whole groups). . )( - )( )( )( )( )( - )( .

Variables tables are useful tools for helping students to plan controlled experiments and develop an understanding of the 3 types of variables to consider when planning Research Question: How does the amount of light affect the growth of seedlings?

Controlled variables What I will change What I will measure Dark Partial shade Full sun The height of

seedlings Independent variable Dependent variable It mustnt be assumed that all students know how to use the required equipment or tools to conduct an experiment or investigation. In every group there will be varying levels of experience in using equipment ie. operating a camera, microscope etc Small scaffolding teacher episodes such as demonstrations or peer to peer

instruction can ensure that all students are competent at using equipment safely, accurately and appropriately. You can then check student understanding/ operation by asking for demonstration any finer teaching points can be provided and refined at this stage. . . . . . . . .
