Mystery Bags Show Up in Third Grade Classroom at Harrison Hill!< Go back
November 7th, 2014
Children in Mrs. Robison’s third grade were shown a bag of items and took some time to look and make inferences about what a person might be doing with these items. Next, students used a graphic organizer to answer questions like who
might have used these items, what
they might have been used for, where
someone might use them, when
they thought these items could be used. They used their notes to write a summary explaining a scenario/story about the items in the bag.
– included a softball, mitt, cleats, and bottle of water
- contained a cupcake pan, cake mix, bowl, spoon, icing, measuring cups, and sprinkles
The students record their inferences on their graphic organizer and then using visual arts and their imaginations, they write stories about who the bag belonged to, and what the owner did with the items in the bag.
