Q3 For your next lesson or unit where can you take your Ss to create experience? Real life field trip or location #sstlap
Q4 how can you use a QR code or image on the board to generate interest? What would you use? #sstlap
Q5 mystery hook- how can you create anticipation about an object (they don't know) what will you use? #sstlap
Q6 what story do I or can I use for an upcoming lesson to grab their curiosity? #sstlap
