The purpose of the assessment probe, in this chapter, is to elicit children’s developing ideas about structure in living systems. The probe is designed to find out if students recognize that living things are made up of parts. The sample chapter also includes the Table of Contents, Preface, Introduction, and Index.
Even though you just purchased a chapter, this chapter is loaded with important pedagogical information designed to improve how teachers implement probes in their classroom. The probe is also about an important large concept - parts. Students are asked if different objects are made of parts.
