    I have finished my reflection and am emailing it to Claudia, Pasha and Michael this evening. All of my students have now taken the post survey. I have just a few minor edits still to make on my unit. I am very glad to have participated in this project, and learned so much!

    I finished up my unit this week, and have one more group of students to complete the post-survey tomorrow. I will tweak my initial plans this weekend and post them, along with my reflection. Last week was amazing with Michael Ziegler co-teaching all four of my classes with me! The kids were disappointed this week to learn that Mr. Ziegler had gone back to Florida!

    I started my lesson on Monday the 26th. We took the pretest on Monday as well. I had planned on doing the printing Friday, but things are moving slower that I had expected. We will print either Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. I have also contacted a couple of paleontologist friends about a fossil hunt but I don’t have anything confirmed.

    Good Morning,
    Below is my update: 
    My reflection document, photos, and an excel document of some pre and post assessments were sent to Pasha this morning.  Students have completed both the pre and post surveys and my final version of my lesson plan was uploaded onto Myfossil earlier this week.  I also have student assent forms ready for pickup or delivery.  Please let me know if anything else that is needed.

    Thanks,
    Tredina

    Hi,

    I was wondering under what folder should we upload the reflection document. Since my lesson was implemented early in the year (August 22-23) I uploaded the revised version.  Both pre-and post-surveys have been completed by my students.

    Thanks,

    Mayra

    • Mayra, please share your reflection doc and any data you have on student learning and their artifacts and photos with me directly. You can email these docs to me or, if they are too large for email, use a file sharing service like Google Drive or Dropbox. Thanks!

    Hello, I just wanted to encourage all of you who might be interested in signing up for this newsletter:

    https://inside3dprinting.com/

    It is a great way to know how 3D scanning and 3D printing is being used, specially in science. Great resource for students as well. They don’t spam you and I believe you can decide how often you want an email from them.

    I am looking for help finding teeth of prehistoric animals for my lesson. I presently have megaladon, parahippus, and sabertooth. I’d like to add 1-3 more. I was looking for a rodent tooth possibly. I’d like to find an animal that may have eaten nuts perhaps. I would also like to print the items to scale, so super large teeth will not work for me at the moment.

    I’m working with 1st graders, so I’d like to find some teeth that are a little more obvious in their features. The kids will have picture cards of the foods to try to match the teeth to. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I am planning on implementing my high school lesson on the mystery fossil the week of October 22nd.  We are having some problems printing out our skulls so hopefully by then, we will have them.  I will send out the consent letters next week, probably October 1st.

    I finally figured out where to put my lesson plan file. It is uploaded in the Elementary folder. I am planning to implement my lesson between 10/11 and 10/24. I will give the pre survey as soon as final approval is received.
