The first year I taught scatter plots, statistics, and probability, I kept wondering how I could engage my students fully into the lesson and assist them in getting back into the routine of school after long holiday breaks. After much thought, I came up with my 'Time to Get Ready' Lesson for all four of my classes. I was nervous and unsure how the students would respond to the lesson, yet, at the end of that school year, this was one of my favorite project lessons the students accomplished that year.
This lesson incorporates students collecting data over 2 months every morning prior to our unit lessons. After the 2 month time frame, we spent 3 full class days completing this lesson. When we finished collecting data, we started our unit on Scatter Plots, Statistics and Probability.
All of my students were more engaged in this lesson since it directly related to them and the data we took as a class over several months. It not only became an effective classroom strategy, but also, a great lesson for my students!
