I love coming up with new and fun ways to keep my class engaged. That is how this idea came to life. Kids love anything they can draw or color. Add in sidewalk chalk and going outside and they are sold!
Simply find an area large enough for the kids to spread out. Draw a box and number their spot. Give each child a corresponding task card or if inside display them on desks or even on the smart board a group at a time. Have them each draw what their task card instructs them to do using chalk. This can also be modified for the classroom using chalkboards, paper, or whiteboards.
After each student has completed their task it is time to begin scooting. Give each student a scoot response sheet. On this sheet the student has to write the fractional parts for what is drawn. Then the teacher instructs the students to scoot to the next picture. *I found it helpful to display the card next to the picture.*
When they have made it back to their original picture they should have a complete response sheet. There is space for them to draw a picture on their sheet, but I did not have my students draw
Either collect or go over the responses.
