Timeframe: 10 Minutes  |  Supplies: Post-it notes, Pens

Brainstorming will be split up into three sections in order to maximize effort and creativity:

  1. Three minutes of individual brainstorming: "What do you think should go in EarthCapsuleOne?"

  2. Three minutes of pair sharing

  3.  Three minutes of full group sharing.

Brainstorming individually will give everyone the chance to come up with their own ideas; pair sharing will help less outspoken people share their idea; full group sharing will consolidate everyone's idea.

In the above video, Justin Aglio prompts a brainstorming session where students are instructed to write one idea per post-it note on what should go on Earth Capsule One.
