Mr. Peake came to two of my seventh grade co-taught math classes to teach an interactive lesson involving origami. Mr. Peake’s lesson provided the students with an extension and enrichment of previously taught concepts. It also got them using terminology related to upcoming lessons. Mr. Peake did an incredible job integrating geometric concepts into the folding activity. He encouraged all students to actively participate in folding, as well as in the Q&A session. The students were very excited about their finished products. A week later, they are still bringing me extra foxes and boats that they have created on their own. I also had a student who created a cube-octahedron on his own and brought it in to share with the class. My students and I are very enthusiastic about having Mr. Peake back at NRMS in the near future for another lesson!
