Product Description
Bundle of 7 editions of Social Media Blitz Performance Task for 8th grade

In the Social Media Blitz Performance Task, students use real social media data to practice writing numbers in expanded forms and in scientific notation, comparing the size of numbers written in scientific notation, and to extend into performing operations with numbers written in scientific notation in an engaging, real world context. Students take on the role of a social media managers and determine who they think will be the best fit for an advertising campaign based on their social media presence.

Editions:
Seven different editions or versions of this Performance Task are included so students can work with the edition they are most interested in, or an appropriate edition can be chosen for the class. Some of the editions included are Actors, Basketball Players, and Musicians (see full list below), which all require students to work with different real data.

This Performance Task could be completed for one level (explained below) in one lesson only or could be extended with the other levels across 2-3 lessons.


What’s included in this Performance Task:

* Teacher Guide – Get an overview of the Performance Task, including helpful suggestions for use and the skills and standards alignment.

* Level 1 Activity – Laying the foundation. Students start by practicing a key skill matched to a math standard. This portion of the lesson could be used alone to practice this skill.

* Level 2 Activity – Adding some complexity. Students integrate a different skill or set of skills which they apply to the context of the task.

* Challenge Activity – Bring on the critical thinking! Students are stretched to reason with math and data to come to conclusions working at Webb's Depth of Knowledge levels 3-4. They might work in groups or this could be used as an extension activity.

* Finale Activities – Extend the learning. Each Performance Task also includes a selection of options to extend the math lesson into another subject (usually ELA).
