Welcome to Mr. Swart’s chemistry class! We made the most of our 25 minutes of class time together by filling out a Ten Facts About Me survey and then used the data to meet classmates and identify commonalities. Students then constructed a network diagram in which their name was a node (a circle with their name inside) and the commonality shared with another student was represented as an edge (a line) connecting the nodes for both students. The commonality was written on the edge. By the end of class, every student was represented as a node, and all parts of the network were connected to each other through at least one route. We are all connected!
