Once students get introduced to the topic they will answer some questions regarding making mistakes. Students will partner up and discuss a mistake they have made and share with a partner. They will share, 1.)What they learned from the mistake?, 2.)Why they made the mistake, and 3.)Will they do the same mistake again?
