I also am a sixth grade science teacher in Florida. I certified in
2003. I just reread the directions. You need to have the students
collect some kind of data. Then you act as a facilitator as the
students discuss the data amongst themselves. The technology tie in
is excellent, but what kind of data are the students going to
collect? I believe some kind of inquiry lab would fit the topic.
Carefully read the portfolio directions. If you want you can email
me directly. I can receive mentor hours....madge
