## Reflection: Relevance I Scream, You Scream - It's a Cone! - Section 3: Activity

I have found that when you make a lesson relevant to the students in a way they understand and can relate to, the learning is endless. They remember it for years to come and they connect the learning to things in the future. I have students still coming to me from years ago asking me if I remember the cone activity that we did.
