Follow initial directions in the Biology Concept Mapping Lesson Plan.
Task II(a): Similar to the concept map you created about yourself, you can also create a concept map that will test your knowledge on how well you know a particular topic. Working in a group, use the large paper and markers to build your concept map. Remember, the most important part of a concept map is the connections you make between the concepts.
Using the following terms, create a concept map that revolves around the topic of Mechanics.
Newton’s First Law (Inertia)
Newton’s Second Law
Newton’s Third Law
Feel free to add concepts that you think should be included.
Task II(b): If time permits and you feel like challenging yourself, try to build a concept map about Energy. This time you are in charge of coming up with the key concepts and connections. (Hint: joules, voltage, power, etc.)
When all the groups are done with their concept maps, be ready to assess/grade another group’s concept map using the concept map rubric.
