Fed-Ex Exercises

11 01 2011

I got this idea listening to Daniel Pink’s talk at Catalyst East.

Yesterday I told my students they had to come up with an exercise, song, game, activity, display, etc. dealing with prepositions.  I told them they could work with who ever they wanted and do basically anything they wanted (of course explosives, guns, drugs, and sex were out of the question.  Yes I did clarify that for you and them).  The only catch is what ever they do they must have done by tomorrow…or today as it were.

This sounds pointless or even lazy to some of you but hear me out.  I could teach them and hope they get it.  Or they can want to create something worth while and teach themselves what a preposition is.  The goal is their understanding not my lecture.

I’ll update and let you know how they did!
