I saw bullies bully. I saw hiders hide. I saw leaders lead. I saw misfits trying to fit. It was just a great opportunity to teach the students compassion towards how they act or react to others. There were students who had good answers but no one would listen to them. Students who swore they knew what they were doing but actually had no clue and were just making the problem worse. But, we all had to work with each other. It was a time for some to be quiet and some to step forward.
I realized I need more activities like this. Not sure how to accomplish that. This fit perfectly with our lesson on classifying organisms. I would love to have a team work lesson for each unit.
