Daily Do Playlist
Daily Do Playlist
Daily Do Playlists are suggested instructional sequences of two or more Daily Do lessons in which students coherently build science ideas over time. While each Daily Do lesson in the Playlist can be taught as a stand-alone task, guidance is provided for teachers to navigate students from one lesson to the next in the context of a We culture:
To better support both teachers and students, the individual Daily Do lessons that make up a Playlist have been updated to include tailored Google Docs, Slides, and/or Jamboard templates to facilitate students’ science learning in the classroom or virtual learning environment (synchronous and asynchronous).
In this first lesson, What happens when we mix colors?, students and their teacher or families read Rainbow Joe and Me and meet Eloise, a young girl who likes to mix her paints to create new colors. Students pause from the story to see what happens when they mix colors together. They compare the new colors they create with the new colors their classmates create—and with the colors Eloise makes in the story—and identify patterns. Students then use the patterns to make predictions about whether the same two colors always make the same new color when mixed together.
In the lesson How can we pull colors apart?, students use the patterns they identified in the previous lesson to predict what colors they will see when a color is pulled apart ("unmixed").
