Each table of fourth graders got a stack of books from a "hundreds." They had to work together to figure out how the subjects could be classified under one major label. Can you solve the puzzles?
Here are the successful Room 15 students:
The next week, using what they knew about the categories, each group had to assign a stack of topic cards to the correct "hundreds." Room 15 did a great job; even if the students had something in the wrong place (like dinosaurs in the 900s), they were able to explain their reasoning (dinosaurs lived a long time ago, in ancient history). I love that they were using their brains!
