Students often lose their focus as they progress with an activity. Many times by the end of an activity they forget what the problem was to begin with. Thus, in order for the activity to go full circle, it is important for
students to look back at the starting point and remember why they did the investigation to begin with. This process helps students develop connections between what they knew/believed prior to their investigation to what they have learnt during their investigation and their conclusion. Elaborating on what was known and what is learnt enables students to develop deeper understandings about specific concepts and make connections to Big Ideas and other disciplines.
