Student Prior Knowledge

Students should already have background on the levels of Organization. Students may need some guidance at the first to get them started. Give them an example on the board that they cannot use.


Instructional Procedures

  1. Play the music from “Star Wars”. Tell the students that today they will be playing Cube Wars!!!!
  2. Sketch the chart on the board.
  3. Fill out part of the chart using the students to feed you information or have several different students fill it out with the classes help. These specific examples cannot be used by the students on their papers.
  4. Hand out the worksheet and text books. The students complete using their best effort. The drawings need to be good enough that others can tell what they are.
  5. After the students have filled out the paper have them cut out the cubes and challenge other students to put them back in the correct order.
