Reflection: High Quality Task Doggy, Doggy, Where's My Bone? Coordinate Plane - Section 2: Guided Practice


Using the graph as a spring board to promote analytical thinking worked really well. I hadn't thought about connecting the graph to an "unwritten story" until during the lesson. The students took a high interest in this graph as most of them have pets. The students were concerned about the dog's well being before finally determining that Niki was probably a small-breed dog. They were concerned that her low weight might land her in the veterinarian's office. We actually had a visit from a local vet too that I organized for the students.
