More Discrepant Events

In a previous post, I explained that a discrepant event is an event that puzzles students because it is contrary to what they would expect to happen based upon their background knowledge.

I showed this to my students which led to a discussion of tipping point and center of gravity.

Then Mrs. Dickey sent this photo, taken in her first grade classroom, to me the next day. Glancy got it! 🙂
