What Do We Do With the Rest?
By Jane Runyon
  

1     The children were sitting in small circles. Mrs. Kim had divided the class into small groups for her science lesson. She handed a different object to each of the groups. One group got an orange. One group got a can of soda. One group got a stack of newspapers. One group got a plastic bottle filled with water. One group got a box of band aids. When each group had their object, Mrs. Kim explained what they were going to do.
 
2     "I would like for you to study your object as a group," she began. "Then I would like for you to tell me how many ways you think you could use your object."
 
3     The groups started buzzing with ideas. One person in each group made a list of all the ways the object could be used. After a few minutes, it was time to share their ideas.
 
4     "Matthew," said Mrs. Kim, "please tell me how your group would use the orange."
 
5     Matthew stood beside his group. "We decided that you could put it in a bowl with other fruit, you could squeeze it for juice, and you could eat it."
 
6     "What would you need to do to the orange before you eat it?" asked Mrs. Kim.
 
7     "We would have to take the outside peel off," answered Matthew.
 
8     "Maddie, what would your group do with the bottle of water?" asked Mrs. Kim.
 
9     "We could drink the water," said Maddie. "Or we could wash our hands in it."
 
10     "What is left when the water is gone?"
