Reflection: Diverse Entry Points Lucky Luggage Tags: Elapsed Time to the Hour - Section 5: Guided Practice

 


Student are excited by the idea of taking imaginary trips around the country! Location photographs sparked interesting side conversations that led to cross-curricular connections. For example, when they observed that Minneapolis & Boston are both near rivers,this led to an interesting discussion about the role water plays in city development. 
When I've taught elapsed time with just the numbers & no context, students were less engaged. Also, the diverse entry points, (time to the minute, to the hour, & elapsed) supports above-level, on level, & below-level students.
