Noise Exploration

Part I:
Investigation.

Object based learning is a fun way to learn about a topic or time period. In the box on the table is an object that will kick off our learning journey.

You have 10 minutes to find out everything you can about the object. You are free to use any means of research available to you. You can work with a team, as a class, or as an individual.

After 20 minutes, we will discuss what you learned, why you think the object is important and relate it to our work together.

Part II:
