The main activity in a constructivist classroom is hands-on problem-solving. Students use inquiry methods to ask questions, investigate a topic, and use a variety of resources to find solutions and answers. As students explore the topic, they draw conclusions, and, as exploration continues, they revisit those conclusions. Exploration of questions leads to more questions.
Read the following classroom scenario:
Students complete a diagram of the Solar System by cutting out the provided photos of each planet and pasting them onto a large sheet of paper. Students label each planet with the correct name and write one fact about each planet. The learning target for the lesson is for the students to understand that the solar system consists of the sun and the nine planets that orbit around it.
With the information given in the scenario, write a 500-750 word essay describing how this activity can be revised to incorporate constructivism, inquiry-based problem solving, adjustments for differentiation, and the assessment you would use to ensure the target of the assignment was met. Include an explanation of why the constructivist approach is useful for teaching science and health.
Support your ideas with two to three scholarly sources.
