This activity brings some fun and laughter to your class! Students will work collaboratively to solve circle problems involving characters and items from the Harry Potter series. Concepts covered include:
- Area & Circumference
- Central Angle & Arc Measure
- Arc Length
- Congruent Chords & Arcs
Students will work in groups of four. Each student will receive a card and work on their problem individually. Their answer will refer to a character, place, or activity. The group must string together the sentence and tell that sentence to the teacher. If they get it right, they move onto the next set. If they do not get it right, they must return to their group and fix any problems.
There are eight sets of cards and four problems are in each set. The answers refer to common mistakes made when using circle properties so it really helps students work through these mistakes!
This is a great activity for a review after a lesson. This can also be played as a game where the first team to finish all the sets wins!
