Reflection: Rigor Mendeleev's Mysterious Castle - Section 3: Guided Practice - Lost in Mendeleev's Mysterious Castle


The students really seemed to enjoy the activity and worked really hard on the Castle Mendeleev Activity, but each of my classes ran way too short on time.  I must admit that I am guilty of trying to squeeze too many activities into one class period.  Students need at least 30 minutes to work in collaborative groups to successfully complete this activity in class. I have given this activity as a homework assignment as well, but many students seem to struggle when they have to complete this work independently.  If you plan on implementing this activity, please plan for at least 30 minutes and provide hints and clues to your students . . . it is even better if you can use your most spooky voice!!!
