Reflection: Flexibility The Butter Bees - Section 3: Writing Activity


I modeled the writing process and made the mistake of circling the butterfly information in red, the bee information blue and the common information green.  The students just drew colored circles.  Ha, ha, ha.  I printed more papers and we started again.  This exercise seemed to stress them out.  I don't know if it was the writing activity or the film crew that caused them to be a little brainless.  I began to write their answers on sticky notes and let them copy the word.  I thought everything was going well, but it went weirdly.
