Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Rolling Down the River - Part 1 - Section 3: River Features and Landform Image Sort


My students enjoyed this activity. They said it was fun and I noticed that all my students were engaged. The students enjoyed looking at the images which helped to contextualize the headings. Sorting the images provided a way for my less vocal students to participate too.

Providing time for students to interact with each other before I called on students to move an image, set the stage for students to feel confident of their choices. Of course not all images were placed under the correct heading, but by the time all the images were sorted for that page, the student that placed the image under the incorrect heading could explain why the image belonged under the other heading.
