This is one of my students' favorite activities. They are so excited when the walk into the classroom and see that it is a Carousel Day!
*Get kids up and moving!
*Easy to grade!
*15 problem carousel with answer sheet!
This carousel has students read short word problems and identify the correct formula needed to solve it. Formulas include Perimeter and Area of Rectangles, Area of Triangles, and Circumference.
Carousel activities allows students to start on any question but instead of working clockwise around the room, the answer they get dictates their next question. For example, if they work out question "A" and get the answer "4", they'd look around the room for the paper with the answer "4" on it. Then they would work out that problem until they are back to where they started. It is easy to check students' accuracy as they work-- just see if their letters are in the correct order!
I print the carousel problems on colored paper to make them stand out when I tape them around the room. To change up the Solution Word or Phrase, just place sticky notes with the new letters on top of the ones already there. A great way to personalize it for your class!
