Collaborative structures give you a way for students to play (learn) nice, too! We're going to pick some of our favorites to share ideas of how you might use them in your classroom. Collaborative structures give students a way to process information. Choosing a structure for students to use to practice what you are teaching them is the "Play It" part of Say It, Play it, Relay It, Weigh It. Make sure to have procedures in place for each structure to keep harmony in your classroom. Students need to know what to expect and what they are suppose to be doing. Clear procedures make the focus more on the content being practice and less on the structure.

The Inquiry Learning Forum (ILF) is a K12 online learning community. Originally a $2 Million, 3-year National Science Foundation grant for science and math educators, the ILF has been expanded to include other subject areas. Currently, there are over 50 Classrooms available (over half of these are science and math). The ILF is designed for use as a professional development tool for both pre-service and in-service teachers. ILF contains videos of real-world classrooms engaged in inquiry-based learning. Accompanying the online videos are lesson plans, student work, teacher video description/reflections, and Indiana standards. In addition to ILF Classrooms, a threaded discussion forum is available, both private (used by pre-service classes and professional development groups) and public (used by our over 5,400 members - worldwide). There is an ILF Library with lesson plans, external links and teaching resources, searchable by math/science content areas.
Submitted by Jane Schott, the focus of this lesson is on gas behaviors. Students will discover ideas about the Kinetic Molecular Theory and the relationships between pressure, volume and temperature. All students will complete part A, then each group will do one of the six activities that illustrates a concept about gas behavior.
