Reflection: Adjustments to Practice Getting Organized - Section 2: Explore


The students were very excited about this experiment.  Most of the students wanted me to hot glue their cardboard box to the inside of the shoe box. This is not what I intended for the students to do. Therefore, I had to pose the students with a challenge. I told them that they had to use a shoe box lid, a shoe box, and one piece of cardboard box. They had to make sure that they created a shelf within their box and  hold a box of crayons. I also inform them that they could not use the shoe box lid to cover the shoe box.  When I posed the students with the challenge, they begin to come up with several creative ideas.  Students began to measure their cardboard and told me where to cut it and how to hot glue it.  I was impressed with my second grade students!
