Committing crime or just having fun?

Middle schoolers estimate the number of beans that is placed in a bottle. They are then split into three groups: Group 1: asked to write estimate on a sheet of paper with some large estimates already written down, Group 2: asked to write their estimate on a sheet of paper with low estimates written down and Group 3: given no estimates (or a mixed group estimates.) Students are asked for examples of how behavior might be influenced by being in a group.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
