Day 1 Subversive Lab Grouping and the Marshmallow Challenge

Today, I started the students with the subversive lab grouping game with a twist. Not only are their five families of things, but five colors as well. Now I have two configurations to rotate through from the start. I can ask them to organize by families of things or groups of colors.

Note: this picture shows four piles for different classes.

We then moved into the Marshmallow Challenge to introduce the idea that we need to test ourselves often to ensure success. I even made a Prezi with a timer embedded, link. This will set the foundation for the syllabus talk tomorrow.
