I am redoing some of my curriculum this year. I have noticed in the past that I lose a lot of time at the beginning of the hour, especially first period. I am wanting to incorporate a bell ringer activity for my classes (Plant and Soil Science, Animal Science, Ag mechanics, Fundamentals, Horticulture and 8th grade semester rotation) Does anybody have some ideas for me? I was thinking of having the kids make a journal and then we can record the bell ringers in that. Suggestion?
