Reflection: Modeling Biographies: Bio Cubes Creation - Section 2: Opener


This activity went VERY smoothly by the time we made it to the computer lab.  It took me a while to learn this, but modeling makes all the difference in the world.  I would be frustrated, the students would be frustrated when I gave directions in the computer lab without any modeling or pre-teaching.  It is amazing how much smoother activities go in the lab with a little pre-teaching and/or modeling.  :)
