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.
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.
