Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Goldfish Graphing - Section 4: Closing/Summarizing


My favorite part of this lesson is the summarizing strategy.  By allowing the students to compare their number of goldfish to a partner's, they put into practice using the mathematical language of more than, less than, or one color has X more than another color (MP3).
