5th/4th Graders invent a game and teach it to the rest of the class.

We did things differently yesterday.  Mr Colvin’s/ Ms. Kohn’s students played the role of teacher.  They were put in small groups, given equipment and assigned to make up a game.  I was so impressed with the higher level thinking that they used to work together and make a game that worked in the short amount of time.  Students gave instructions and kept their peers engaged and listening.  Days like this give me hope in our future.
