The video recorder becomes the “third eye” for students, objectively and observantly documenting the work students are doing to provide a means for further discussion, analysis and presentation. Students are learning how to document their work to further their exploration of a topic. This is an introductory lesson to a grade two unit on boats and buoyancy (Alberta Program of Study), in which students begin the process of documenting their investigations as they begin to consider their ideas and create an electronic portfolio of their science work and growing understandings.
