A fun activity covering all the Grade 5 Common Core Operations & Algebraic Thinking standards.
Outline of activity:
Students work in teams of 4, competing to be the first to win the 4 rounds of the relay race.
In their teams of 4 students pair up into twos. The pair with A1 has to start by solving the problem on their card. When the star pair have an answer for A1 they write it on their Answer sheet and pass it to the other pair - this is the only form of
communication allowed between the pairs in the team.
The pair with A2 now have to use this answer to solve A2 - when they get this answer they write it on the sheet and pass it back to the other pair to help them solve
A3 and so on.
When the pair with A4 have put the final answer on the sheet, they then
have to go to you to check their answers.
A great way to review all the key points of the OA topic, as well as encouraging team work and engaging students.
