The Power of Observation
The teacher will arrange for someone to enter the classroom briefly to speak with the teacher. In a few minutes that person will go out of the room and wait in the hallway. Students will then be asked to describe the person. What was he/she wearing? What color is his/her eyes? Hair? How tall is the person? etc. Then the person will be invited back in to see how well the students observed the first time.
