Today was an especially good Friday, jam-packed with learning, smiles and LOTS of laughter. We had Junior Achievement with Mrs. Noble, played a new math review game, picked countries for our country project, and finally found out who our mystery person was… sneaky Ms. Wood!
I’d say the crowd favorite was ZAP! - our math review game. This game is kind of like a modern spin on jeopardy. The class is split into four groups. Each group must decide on a team name. Ours were quite interesting as you may have guessed: The Dunkin Donuts Fan Club, The Kentucky Fried Gummy Bears, The Northern Lights and Team Awesome. Each group is asked a math question. If they get the question correct, they get a point. If they get it wrong, the question moves to the next team. The team that gets it correct must pick a card from the ZAP! board. The cards are either good, bad or blank! If you pull a ZAP! card, all of your team’s points are erased. What I love most is that it’s anyone’s game at any point in time.
Check out the video below to see all the problem solving and collaboration happening! I was impressed. :)
Stay warm out there!
