4 Quarters and A Rectangle



Tip: 4 Quarters and A Rectangle

How do I do it?
Give each group of 4 a blank sheet folded in fourths. Unfold and draw a rectangle in the center. Each student takes turns writing or drawing what they know about the topic in their corner. After a determined time or the paper fills up, the students vote on the most important fact and write it in the center of the paper. 

Groups can report out to the rest of the group; write sentences or a paragraph summary using the sheet as a pre-writing tool.
