    I wasn't sure where this should be posted so I put it here and under elementary education. I was hoping you could help me out with a question about a demo lesson. I am presenting two different demo lessons in the same school one for first and one for second grade. They both involve math topics and I wanted to divide kids into groups for at least one of the lessons. I was wondering if it would be wrong to have the same format for both lessons. I was thinking of doing a 10-15 minute intro, 20 minute group work and 10 minute closure. Thanks!

    I think that you can definitely use the same format for each, but keep the intro short. First graders have very short attention spans.

    That's a pretty tried and good formula and if it's effective then it's a good one to stick too. In a classroom, if students get use to how you structure a lesson they can become more settled during instruction time because they know what to expect.
