Atwood-Blaine, Dana; Rule, Audrey C.; Morgan, Hannah – Journal of STEM Arts, Crafts, and Constructions, 2016
In the lesson on which this practical article is based, third grade students constructed a "lift-the-flap" page to explore food webs on the prairie. The moveable papercraft focused student attention on prairie animals' external structures and how the inferred functions of those structures could support further inferences about the…
