Thank you for your interest this “Find Someone Who Can” Activity! I use this activity as a review at the end of a unit or before a transition in a unit. I give student a couple of minutes before they get up and move to get answers from their peers to mark the questions that they know for sure that they can solve. I give about 30-40 minutes for them to get answers from their peers. At the end of the allotted time students are required to solve any additional problems on their own. I also allow students to put questions on a parking lot for us to review as a class if they are still uncertain about if they are correct or if they do not know how to solve it. Students like this activity because it gets them up and moving. I like this because it gets them talking about math and reviewing previously learned concepts. I think this activity can also serve as a preview activity at the beginning of a unit.
Please post any questions or comments.
