Delia Hakim and Christine Confer team-teach this multi-lingual first-grade class in Tucson, Arizona. Before the lesson, students were asked what they wanted to learn about. They chose ladybugs and decided on some questions they wanted to answer, namely, how many heads, wings, feet, antennae, and mouths ladybugs have. In this video segment, students made predictions and then explained how they arrived at their predictions. In pairs, students observed ladybugs by using magnifying glasses, and recorded the information on bar graphs. Finally, students completed a class chart and compared their data.

As you observe the class, look for the connections that are made throughout the lesson. Please watch the video excerpt now (duration 5:00).
