Buttons Everywhere

Quality: Problem Solver; Collaborator

Evidence: In English class, sixth graders formed groups of three for a pre-noun activity.  Groups were given bags of assorted buttons to categorize.  First, they brainstormed different categories for the buttons, including color, size, texture, number of thread holes, etc.  Then they categorized three times, each group choosing a different way each time and explaining what they had chosen. They were excited about the activity (even asking for the third try because they were only going to do two) and worked well together.  They then applied the knowledge about how each button could fit into several categories to nouns.
