Bell Work

Test Your Observation Skills

Have the overhead projector ready with a transparency made up asking 10 or so questions that will test your students' observation skills. For example: What are the colors of the bathroom walls? How many tables are in the cafeteria? How many swings are on the playground? What kind of computers are in the computer lab? Try to find things that they look at regularly but may not "see."
