Ball Review- Instead of calling on students to answer the questions, we will be answering by ball toss. 5. If you would like to answer, raise your hand. I will start by

tossing the basketball to the first person, and they will answer accordingly. 6. After they answer, you will raise your hand and they will toss the ball to the next person. 7. Remember, we are TOSSING THE BALL, not throwing it across the room. Practice: Identify as either abstract or concrete.
