Reflection: Perseverance Close Read: A Day's Work - Integration of Knowledge and Ideas - Section 4: Group Activity: T-Charts


Activities like this compare and contrast activity using the giant post-it notes around the room, get the students up and moving.  It is almost like a break or a recess for the students.  They get a physical break without a mental break.  They are still learning and utilizing their brains but their ability to persevere and continue to focus improves greatly after an activity that gets them up and moving.
