What a great idea, Isabel! Activating prior knowledge is such a great way to launch learning. It also helps the teacher gauge where each child is in the learning process. It would be great for students to add to this brain dump throughout the unit as they learn additional information.

Love this idea! I have used Freeform for my College Algebra and College Stats students to create a collaborative notes page that they can reference when studying for their end of semester final. We have also used it to brainstorm solving quadratic equations in Algebra 2.
