learning scenario on Asteroids, impacts and craters

Are you looking for inspiration to introduce collaborative teaching and learning in your classroom? Check out this Learning Scenario on Asteroids, Impacts and Craters, which has a focus on collaborative learning, and is intended to help you design meaningful learning activities using innovative pedagogical approaches. This scenario aims to give you some ideas of the type of learning approaches, activities and even content you might wish to cover when designing your own collaborative learning lesson plan.

In this scenario, students collaborate using the context of an asteroid impacting on a planet. The main learning focus is on measurement, concepts of evidence, and the role of science and scientists on humanity. 

As an introduction, students decide on a science in society issue, in the context of space, that they would like to investigate and report on. They develop their knowledge and understanding of nature, and of the laws of science, as well as how scientists work, and the impact of that work on humanity. 

Here you can find an empty Learning Scenario Template, originally developed within the Creative Classrooms Lab project. This learning scenario template can help you reflect and design your own learning activities.
