I was apart of this group that taught this lesson. The student did seem love the lesson and also understand what we were teaching them. The only problem that the students had was with the graphing. They did not seem to understand how to do the graphing or how decimals work on a graph.

When we come back to the classroom after the nature walk, I would have my students look at the objects that they have gathered and see if there is anyway to group them by size, color, or shape.

4 It's good but could of been longer
I feel like this article was well written and has helped me to understand what boys and girls need when learning. I would however, have liked to see more written about the subject and why that type of play works. I would of also liked to see some scientific studies included in the article.
