Reflection: Advanced Students How Many Apples? - Section 3: Student Practice


During this lesson, one of my higher level students came up to me and said, "Mrs. Nelson, if I ate half of this apple, I would have 500 grams." I gave him permission to try it. Soon other students wanted to try this as well. What I enjoyed most was watching the students continually go over to the scale to measure, even though the knew they hadn't eaten half of the apple yet: Eating an Apple.
