10X10 Review Activity

I tried a new activity this week called 10X10.  I read about this in an Edutopia article by Warren Berger called 5 Ways to Help Your Students Become Better Questioners.  In the article he attributed the activity to a second-grade teacher named Julie Grimm.  So I have a big thanks for Warren and Julie -- Thanks!!

I made this ppt slide for my kiddos when we do this activity.  So that they and I can remember the guidelines.

Since my AP Biology class is approaching their first test (over Biochemistry), I decided to use the 10X10 activity as a bell-ringer.  Then I let my kiddos work on the Legacy of Learning Project for 15ish minutes while I looked over their questions (in between answering tech questions, helping them on their projects and putting out "fires").  And as I read their questions I was so impressed by them that I started typing them so that when the 15 minute time period was up we could go over some of the questions.

This is definitely going to be a well used tool in my classroom particularly when we are approaching review or when we are covering more difficult material.

If you try this, let me know how your kiddos do?
