Ms. Marino’s Magnificent Investi-“GATORS”


My 2nd grade RTI class from Allapattah Flats K8 School has been busy reading and finding evidence in text. After reading The Science of Snow, Snowflake Bentley and Freddy Flake’s Water Cycle Journey, I decided that these students were ready to be real investi-“gators” on the concept of snow. So, each student was given a magnifying glass to begin their hunt, and off they went.

The students were broken up into groups of three and four and assigned one of the stories. Certain questions were asked and the search began for the quickest find! In the end, they all earned prizes and are ready to begin the journey again next week.
