Fun, engaging collaborative activity to practice integer operations!
Students work in teams of 6 -- they each start by answering the questions on their assigned letter sheet -- then each student records their answers for the 5 questions on the team's answer sheet. Once all players have recorded their answers, the team must calculate the sum of the 6 answers of each question. Once teams have the five sums, the final challenge is to calculate the product of those five sums! Students are encouraged to work together and check each others work to achieve success on their first try. The first team to get the correct final product wins!
**Teacher prep - Copy one answer sheet for each team in your class. Assign each student on the team a letter A-F and copy enough question sheets so each student has one. Cut the Letter question sheets apart and give each student only their questions. Start the activity like a race and watch the students work together to win the relay race!
