TIME
Most activities can be completed in 10-20 minutes, but this could vary based on the students, engagement level, and the tasks.

INDEPENDENT AND WITH PARTNERS
Both! These activities can be completed independently or with partners. Both ways are effective.

NO PARTICULAR ORDER
There is not a certain order to complete each page. In fact, students might not even fill it all out-- but they can try.

MANAGING THE BOX
Teachers have total control for how they would like to manage the box in the classroom.

OPEN ENDED
Many of the activities have instructions but they aren’t incredibly detailed. This was done on purpose. The idea behind these activities is for students to problem solve and decide how they are going to solve it all. Let students know this. Let them know that these activities are open-ended and open to their own interpretation. Encourage them to ask questions and collaborate, but also take time to explore their ideas.
