#MakeItReal Moment: Number 2

Cold As Ice

Recently, a friend of mine from college posted an observation of his from a shopping trip to the store on his Facebook page.

As you can see, he’s correct. They don’t stock “winter water” anymore…just Spring Water. However, during our time together as suite-mates in college, our daily levels of snark and sarcasm were difficult to match. So moments later, I responded.

My friend may have seen this and chuckled, but what he didn’t see (which may be much funnier), was that I turned to my wife quickly and said…”Don’t talk to me for a second, I’m onto something!” She knows better than to ask questions đŸ™‚

Here’s what I was thinking:

Is it cheaper to buy the bottled water, or to buy the ice and melt it to drink?

If you want to know…here’s a doc with my solution. 

But, like I’ve decided to do with my #MakeItReal Moments, I now also leave you with this question:

What are three ways you could use this moment in your classroom to add relevance to a lesson?
