ELAGSE2SL3 Ask and answer questions about what a speaker says in order to clarify comprehension, gather additional information, or deepen understanding of a topic or issue.
Math & English
- The facilitator can ask students to write down a specific three-digit number or to solve a specific three-digit addition/subtraction problem.
- Students will write down their response on one side of the paper.
- Students are then prompted to crumble their paper and to toss it in a basket, in the middle of the floor, or the table.
- The facilitator then collects the paper and reads the response.
This activity is great with introducing a lesson, and can also be done with students working together in groups to promote soft skills, with working effectively with each other. It also promotes peer-learning. The facilitators can also ask students to write down and addition problem on one side and subtraction problem on the other side.
