Open a Louisiana window - Day 1

Xanga Blog


Every teaching has that need for "What do I do on opening day" when class suddenly seems to too long, too short,they are too wild, that need to have them do something subject related. This turned out to be the best first day of school I've ever had. For the past couple of years, I've used the same 'first day of school' activity, which is what I call the "Math Window Activity." I can't claim to have come up with it on my own. I know I 'borrowed' it from somewhere, but I can no longer remember where; I have modified it various times, but the basis is still there, and I finally have a version of the Math Window activity that pleases me the most. Now MrE has modified it again for Louisiana history and presents his version here.
