Your students will think that you’re giving them a break when in reality they will be reviewing the skills they’ve learned in Algebra class so far!
Materials needed: each student needs one copy of each worksheet, markers/crayons/colored pencils, scissors (get even more creative by getting those funny googly-eyes from a craft store so that students can glue funny eyes on their turkeys).
Put students into small groups of 3 or 4 to work together. Distribute one of each sheet (2 turkeys and one unscramble vocabulary terms). Students are to work together on finding the solutions to the problems on each turkey. Then have students color the turkeys and cut them out. You can easily punch a hole and add string to one of the feathers and display them around your classroom. I’ve also included a blank turkey that you can use any way you choose. Here are some suggestions:
- In an honors class, have students create questions to then exchange with their partner and solve.
- Have students reflect on their data from district or school assessments and write down the benchmarks/standards that they need most help with.
- Give students vocabulary terms and/or properties that they need to define and provide examples of.
- Give students more review problems knowing exactly what their strengths and weaknesses are.
These activities will surely keep them busy, working, learning, and reflecting independently and cooperatively.
Concepts covered: finding domain and range, slope, equation of lines, standard form, graphing, combining like terms, and properties of exponents among others. Check out the preview file for more details.
