  • Share an example of a time when there were two buses taking the grade level to a field trip. Too many students climbed onto one bus, so they could not all ride to the field trip like that. Some of the students had to get off and go onto the other bus. That way, everyone could get to the field trip. In this instance, the students were regrouped.
