Reflection: Connection to Prior Knowledge Should Animals Wear Clothes? 5 of 5 - Section 1: Warm Up


After the first day of a Unit, I like to review the information we discussed the day before.  I love to use templates and charts to organize the students thoughts.  Many times I have to prompt them and even give suggestions as to what can be used on the charts/templates.  The higher students catch on quick and will be more creative in their thinking.  As the week progresses, I like to put the charts side by side for the students to track our thinking and increase their understanding of what we are doing.  By the last day, most students have the whole thing memorized.
