PPT Presentation to aid in the instruction of Eureka Math/EngageNY 5th Grade Module 1 Lesson 15. Custom animation included.
I played Harry Potter instrumental music in the background and students paired up with a neighbor as either Hermione or Harry for problems within the Concept Development portion of the lesson. The student playing Hermione drew disks on their place value chart and the student playing Harry had to write the standard algorithm. We had a race to see who the best "wizards" were in the class. When they had finished and checked their work, they held up their wand (pencil) to have me come check their work. It was a hit with students.
