At the beginning of the school year I do a science experiment called, 'Who is Ms. Locke?' After a review of the scientific process, I tell the students they have to go around the room to see how much they can find out about me. I set up stations with clues about my previous jobs, my hobbies and my interests. I set it up so they have to take notes on what they find out and allow them to work in teams so they can bounce ideas off each other. They aren't allowed to ask me questions directly. My students love being detectives!
