In collaboration with Education Development Center, the Project GUTS Earth Science module was modified to work as an "overlay" on top of an existing 5th grade Water Cycle lesson. The add-on to the existing lesson consisted of an Introduction to StarLogo Nova, then decoding the water pumping base model with teacher support, followed by adding another pump and running an experiment. The teacher professional development on the new module was a success and this fall we will see how feasible this new style of module is in the classroom.
