Title: Promoting creativity in the classroom
I will start by telling audience members a little bit about who I am. Then proceed in explaining where and how I implemented this lesson including expectations (rubric).
As a hands-on activity, I will break the audience in small groups and allow them to create their own enviro-bag. Once finished, each group will spend a few minutes to present their product.
