Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Building Creatures Day 2 - Section 3: Station Time


As students were cleaning up front the building of their creature (previous lesson), some of them were placing extra items on their creation.  Instead of asking them to take it off, I figured I would notice if other students realized their supply cost were greater than 25¢.  

As students noticed this, I asked them to explain why that was and how much over 25¢ the creature cost.  I have included a  clip of this discussion More Than 25 Cents.
