Reflection: Save Sid! Math Practice 1 - Section 2: Activity


This was a great lesson to talk about what perseverance is.  The students did a great job at coming up with a student friendly definition of not giving up and to keep going.  All of the groups "drowned Sid" several times, but they kept going to solve the problem.  During the class discussion we talked a lot about keeping that feeling in each math class and to welcome mistakes. 

This was really fun lesson.  We did eat some gummy worms and life savers after!  :)
