That Crazy Dress!

Last night, while on my way home from work, a friend asked me what color a dress was.  I replied "indigo with black lace?"  Her response was gold and white... I didn't understand!  I went about my day, no big deal, and thought little of it.  It was a HUGE deal by morning.  The internet was freaking out about this dress!  I couldn't believe it!  That's when the lightbulb went on in my head....I wanted to ask my students what they thought of this dress.
 During out breakfast/bell work time I went around and asked all of the students (even the few additions in my reading group).  While on my prep, I took time to make a quick sheet that we could use to interpret the data we had collected.  Luckily, most of my kids see what I see, so I know I'm not that crazy!  There are a few that did see the white and gold though.  It was very interesting and a ton of fun for them!
