    Warm Up and Main Activity

    Lead-in or Warm-up (2-3 minutes): Scavenger Hunt (Animal)
    Assign students an animal. 

    Students will go into breakout rooms to then ask each other yes or no questions to try to figure out their animal
    Ex: “Is it green?”, then when a student will respond with yes or no.

    When everyone has finished, have students go around and share who they found for each question
    ***Remind students to actually interact with each other and have a conversation, not just ask each other which one they have

    Main activity: ASL Questionnaire
    Project the ASL Questionnaire questions to each student

    Have a student sign the question then have the rest of the group give responses. Then move on to the next question.
    If there's more time, have students switch Questionnaire cards and do it again

    Lab assistant notes: Remind students to take a picture of their lab sheet before they leave in case they lose it! If they do lose it and don't have pictures of their lab sheets, we can't sign a new one for them.

    End of lab: Can-Do statement check-in... “Where are we?
    Read can-do statements and have students evaluate their confidence with cards
    Encourage students to be honest in their self evaluation
    Pay attention, and try to use feedback for future labs!
