The day following the final presentations the class will push their desks to the edges of the room and sit in a circle on the floor. We will then hold a class discussion about what we have learned about animals, adaptations, and environments. The teacher will have some prompt questions ready (i.e. What did you learn that you never knew before? What is an adaptation and why do animals need them? What kind of adaptations do we, as humans, have to our environment?) If the students are usually willing to participate let them take part in the discussion freely, monitoring who is and isn't talking and encouraging those who are quiet to speak by asking them specifically what they think. If the students tend to hesitate to participate give each student a piece of paper and ask that each student speak at some point in the discussion and pass in their paper when they have spoken. Our discussion won't end until everyone's paper has been returned. This kind of discussion will allow the students to review everything they have learned throughout the unit and, hopefully, make personal connections.
