Today students were introduced to VENN DIAGRAMS, a graphic organizer used to compare and contrast sets of information.
I provided them with an example on the board that compared me with the two other 7th grade science teachers on campus. After this introduction, I grouped students into groups of three so that they could complete their Venn Diagrams which compared and contrasted themself with two of their peers. Students were asked to provide three bullet points in each of the 7 sections.
Students had 40 minutes to complete this assignment which was due at the end of the period.
