Rules & Expectations: Active Listening

Classwork/ Activity: Back to Back Partner Drawing 

Learning Objectives

  • to have a clear understanding of how to be an active listener in science class

Back to Back Partner Drawing:
Sit with partner facing away from each other so that your backs are touching. 
Decide who will be teh listener first and who will be the artist first. You will switch and take turns doing both activities. The artist will have 30 seconds to make a drawing with geometric figures (basic shapes).  The listener may not view it.   NO PEEKING!
The artist will then explain to the listener how to duplicate the drawing on their own paper. The active listener will do their best listening to complete the drawing.
We will then compare and discuss how good communication skills help us to "see" what the other person is trying to say.
