Reflection: Classroom Setup Searching for Seeds - Section 1: Introduction


I know that moving my class to a new location has some trade offs.  We lose some time in traveling, there's a good chance someone will forget a notebook or pencil, and I expect their behavior to be irregular because of the change in setting.  I decided to bring my students to the school's "science lab" anyway because I could take advantage of a parent's offer to "help out anytime I needed her." I had her cover tables with butcher paper, cut the cantaloupes in half, and get everything passed out.  In the long run, this was worth the trip upstairs because I didn't have to spend any class time preparing or passing out materials.
