Human Graphing: Use tape to make a huge coordinate plane on the floor. Assign each student a number. I thought it would be fun to pin their numbers to their shirts like runners get at a marathon to make them true Mathletes! This would be their "number" to plug into parent functions. They would then graph themselves on the coordinate plane.
Human Fooseball: How can this be educational??? I don't know, but it looks so fun that I have to try it!!! The only thing I can come up with so far is have teams who score a goal, answer a review question for an "extra" point. If the team, cannot correctly answer the question, the opposing team gets a turn to steal.
Giant Sorry: The game Sorry has about 20 -24 pieces - perfect to get all students involved. I thought I could tape pre-determined questions to the floor in the shape of the Sorry game board. As the students move around the game board, they would need to correctly answer questions or face a penalty of moving backwards.
Dance, Dance Revolution: I ordered these last year and have yet to unpack them :/
Amazing Race with Google Earth: I have found lots of ideas online for creating a classroom Amazing Race. I am still sorting through this to make it applicable to my subject matter.
GeoCaching: I love online caches, but I was thinking something outside.
QR Code Scavenger Hunt: Finally, found something that will work. I will share more later!
Snapguides: Have students create tutorials using Snapguide
Screencasts: Assign each student a question from the study guide to create a tutorial. Post screencasts on an interactive study guide using Dabbleboard, Google presentation, or Prezi
Write a Short Story: The Story of X and how he found himself. Publish short stories on class blog.
100's Chart Game: One of my all time favorites that I usually use on St. Paddy's Day.
Algebra vs The Cockroaches: Online flash game
Graph a Wave Party: Intro activity to introduce graphing trig waves complete with a little beach ball fun.
You Tube Turkey Hunt: Ok, technically this is a worksheet, but the students find a prize on You Tube and then get cupcakes at the feast. CuPcAkeS and MaTh - no better morning!!!
Jenga: Not sure about this one. I need to have someone who has actually played Jenga help me, but in the meantime, I have found a great example of how the game was used as a test prep tool.
Virtual Piano: I will be using this at Christmas time this year. Self-checking activity in which students complete multiple choice questions and then play their answers on the keyboard. If the answers are correct, the answers should yield a recognizable tune. The students did not recognize the fight song last year; maybe they will get Jingle Bells easier.
ClassTools' War of Worlds: This is my standard "go-to" activity that I use for Open House, Back to School Night, and test review. The students never realize they are working 30 plus problems in a matter of minutes.
While this list is in no way comprehensive, it does give me a spring board for planning lessons on the block. Some activities I have done before; others, I still need to wrap my mind around. WhAt am I MiSSinG? Do YOU have an AcTivIty that YOU will ShAre with me?
