Student knowledge construction is what happens when students go beyond just reproducing what they have learned, but generate their own ideas and demonstrate understanding of what makes the information unique. The skills of knowledge construction range from inferring to analysis to interpretation to synthesis and evaluation. Many of these skills may also be considered "critical thinking." While teaching these skills can be a challenge, finding useful web resources can be simple. Peruse this collection to find resources to use in your lessons for all grade levels to encourage student knowledge construction.

tag(s): critical thinking (103), problem solving (217)

In the Classroom

Find new tools to try to encourage student knowledge construction within your lessons. Each review includes technology integration ideas. Read the details of each tool and find the ones that will make your students become student knowledge constructors.

Not only will these crafts and activities allow students to express their creativity, but they will also learn a little about diversity, science, math, and reading. Unfortunately, there are too many activities to list here. Still, a few interesting titles are Create Fireworks in a Jar, Conduct a Baking Soda Science Experiment, Create a Soft Circuit, Write a Patriotic Poem (with the letters of your first name), and plenty more!
