Fidget spinners are entertaining to both kids and adults. However, sometimes they are not always used at the most appropriate times. This activity is designed to remedy that problem! Students get to use their fidget spinners as part of the assignment!
What do the students do?
Your students are given the included worksheet that can be copied front to back or one to one for 30 questions, or just the first sheet for 10 questions (great way to differentiate). You have the option of either giving them one of the copies of the Fidget Spinner Cards to place their spinner on, or they can simply place their spinner on their desk or table top. All at the same time, students are to spin their fidget spinner one time and try to answer as many questions as they can before the spinner comes to a complete stop. Don’t have a fidget spinner for each student? No problem. They can be paired together to share a spinner, or those with technology may already have a fidget spinner app already downloaded. You can also put a countdown simulator on the projector for the whole class. Online Stopwatch
has some great timers if spinners are not an option.
When should I use it?
The sky is the limit for how you choose to use this activity and when. You could use this activity as a warm-up/bell-ringer or ticket-out-the-door to gauge your students’ understanding of your lesson. You could use it as a pre-assessment before a unit or topic to determine prior knowledge. You could even use the activity as a review game and have teams compete against each other. Like I mentioned, there are many different ways you could use this activity in your classroom. However you choose to implement the activity, I am sure your students will enjoy this interactive approach to assessing their learning.
