Reflection: Joy Introduction to Animal Encounters - Section 1: Cue Set


Instead of doing the same old turn to your partner and share, I decided to make it a bit more fun.  Scholars shared the characteristics of the animal that they encountered without sharing the identity of the animal.  Then, partners had to guess the identity of the animal.  This made it feel more like a game and less like school.  Scholars had loads of fun!
