prediction chartAs a Connection Activity you can present a scenario related to your lesson and have students make a prediction based on the scenario. You can use an online polling tool such as Socrative or Poll Everywhere to gather students' predictions, or have them note them individually and then reflect on them during the lesson. You can also use a Pause and Predict strategy with video where you play a small clip of a video and then pause it and ask students to predict what will happen next. This can encourage discussion related to the lesson topic and activate students' prior knowledge.
