Our bellwork today focused on problem solving and critical thinking skills. It had a list of latitude and longitude lines that had to be placed around a globe. I didn't tell students how to place them, they had to figure it out on their own.
If you understood what to do, it was REALLY simple. If you didn't get it, it looked really confusing. Basically, if you knew that 45° came before 90° you could figure out which line was which.
We also played latitude and longitude battleship - but the true battle will come tomorrow.
I'm confident I will win.
