  74. 74. • The teacher has camouflaged a lizard and placed it on the wall somewhere in the classroom. – Casually walk around the room and when you find it secretly wander for a bit and then sit down.
  75. 75. • Creating a Camouflaged Lizard – You will follow me around the school on a short tour looking for a cool school wall / board to camouflage a lizard. Select the colors you need and off you go by yourself. Best behavior is expected. Public spaces only. – Name must be on the back. – Must be clearly visible on surface of room or hallway somewhere. (Not under tables in closets etc) – use tape to secure to a height between knees and tallest reach. – When I see it, I remove it and grade it. – Who will last the year without me finding it? – Backwards grading. If I don’t find it you win. • Note you will be asked to bring it to me at some point. Copyright © 2010 Ryan P. Murphy
