Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Greatest Hits on Your Birthday - Section 2: Application Research


I really like that the same group of boys who were caught looking at almanacs as I explained the activity, went "old school" They decided to use the World Almanacs on the table even when allowed to get up and go to the computer. It's possible that they realized there was relevant information to be had.  It's not ALWAYS about the internet (though with this activity, it certainly is the faster way.)
