In addition, the student will do brief research to come up with at least 3 interesting facts about the volcano to add to the report. *Note: each teammate needs to explain and incorporate at least three things from their portion of the investigation into the volcanic model. 2. Setting: a. Elementary classroom environment with posted rules and expectations b. Team desks arranged an interior loop where all students can see the teacher c. Team tables will be arranged close enough for team-to-team interaction d. There’s an open space for classbuilding 3. Group involved: Second grade students in heterogeneous groups of four 4. Implementation of the seven keys for success 1. Structures; The structures that will be utilized for this project include Team Projects, Single RoundRobin, Sum-the-Ranks, Number Group Presentation, and Stand Up, Hand Up, Pair Up. 2. Teams; students will be in heterogeneous teams of four where teammates are of mixed gender, race, ethnicity, and achievement levels. On each team, there will be one high, one low, and two medium achievers. If there are extra students, teams may consist of three or five teammates. 3.
