There are so many amazing thing in this video. This teacher is all for hands on learning and that's something I saw throughout the whole video. Especially with the bugs. Most teachers would never bring in real life bugs in the classroom and even though some of the children were scared or grossed out, the teacher really helped them through it and it was a fun experience for the children. I also enjoyed that she had a great discussion with the children about bugs. It seemed like they were working on the topic "bugs" for a while because when she brought up Maryn to the front of the group to tell everyone that she had an interest in bugs and what she observed with the bugs they were looking at. Basing ciriculum on the needs and interests of students is an important thing for teachers to do because it keeps the students engaged in the work they are doing. This teacher is allowing her students to learn through their senses as well as play.

I loved the activity and think it's perfect for this age group. The teacher facilitates an environemnt that promotes critical thinking by guiding students without giving answers. Students engage in hands-on learning about snails and explain their reasoning using evidence in a way that will aid them in understanding scientific concepts later down the line.

I love how you allow your students learn hands on. You also do a great job helping them think on their own. A few things pointed out to me; your special needs students alwasy having something to hold in their hands when you need them to focus and challenging the students to think deeper by asking what would happen next or why they felt that wat. Keep it up!
