Connecting with other subjects

I loved the idea of gong on a field trip to the Garbage. It is true.
Scientist do not need to reinvent everything. I liked how Tim O'Keefe had
the experts come to his classroom before the filed trip. The experts lead
the discussion. Tim was the scribe and allowed the students to create their
own ideas.

I also liked how Virginia Lockwood had the students write their own story
problems using the scientific information. It is a great idea to blend the
science and math naturally.

I agree that learning is about making connections. It should not be an
isolated event. I encourage the students in my class to journal and record
their findings. They are ask to make tables, graphs and charts when it is
appropriate. We use the information that we are gaining in our writing. I try
to use good nonfiction in the classroom to add to the inquires that we are
doing in the classroom. I feel that by weaving the idea throughout the
subjects the learning is not fragmented. I am always encouraging my students
to make the connections to all subject areas. Hopefully, the learning they
are doing today will last a lifetime and serve them well in the future.
