Product Description

How do you play?
1) Place the card with the problem under your document camera and display it. OR you can print the cards and laminate them. Give the laminated card to one student in each group (I recommend groups of 4). Each group member should also receive a “hot seat handout” where they will complete each problem. This way,, no one is just sitting there.

2) The person student in the hot seat will complete the problem on the laminated card while his/her group members are completing the same problem on their handouts. EVERY student needs to complete the problem.

3) When you say time is up, the person sitting in the hot seat will pass the laminated card to the person in front of them (or beside them, depending on how you set up your groups).. That person will look at the completed problem and pass it to the person in front of them if they agree with the answer….this will continue til every person in the group has reviewed and approved the answer on the card.

4) If a student is handed a problem they think was done incorrectly, they will pass it back to the student in the hot seat.

5) If the student in the hot seat & gets their card passed back, they must fix it and try passing it forward again.

6) If the problem makes it to the person in the front row (or the last person in the team), the team has indicated that each group member agrees on the answer & it is ready to be checked.

7) A correct answer will get their team 5 points. An incorrect answer, however, will cause the team to lose 5 points.

8) Students will then rotate ( the first person in the row will move to the hot seat).

Alternatives: You can use whiteboards or notecards, etc. if you do not want to spend time laminating
