Guidance and Discipline

Miss Melanie is conducting an art lesson with her pre-kindergarten class. She has spent the last fifteen minutes explaining how to construct a rabbit from the materials on the tables. As she begins to discuss how the children will divide the materials at their tables, Miss Melanie notices that several children are getting wiggly, some are whining that they do not want to make rabbits. Miss Melanie cannot understand what has happened to her well-planned lesson. What is the likely cause of the problem?
Good heavens! She exceeded the children's attention span by about 14 minutes.
She should have them make the rabbits as she shows them.
