Students will be divided into groups of four, preferably one proficient, two partially-proficient, and one minimally proficient. Each student will receive a sheet of paper containing four shamrocks (with missing angle problems to solve). I printed the number 1 on light green paper for the minimally proficient students, number 2 and 3 on dark green papers for the two partially proficient students, and number 4 on green-yellowish paper for the proficient students. If you don’t have colored paper to print on, have your students color their shamrocks accordingly. Each teammate will solve their problems from their own sheet, show their work on the shamrock clovers, cut it out, make a hole at the top with a hole puncher, and attach a wide-opened paperclip to the shamrocks. The student will then hang their shamrocks on a suspended green piece of yarn, as shown in the image provided. The students are encouraged to coach their teammates, if necessary. The goal is to attach your teams sixteen shamrocks on the chain of luck. Coach your teammates if help is necessary, but don’t give them answers.
