Who's ready to use some deep sea thinking in their classroom? Each morning, I have my students solve a math task for morning work. This enables all of my students to complete the entire math task so we are able to discuss it during our small math groups.
During small math groups, my students take turns playing this game to discuss how they solved the task. This fun question game encourages students to ask and answer higher level questions using Bloom's Taxonomy. Here is how to play the game:
1.Have students solve a math task or word problem independently.
2.With a partner or in a small group, have students roll two dice.
3.He or she will then answer the question from the poster based on the number he or she rolled.
4.Students will take turns discussing the answers to these questions based on how they solved their math task or word problem.
5.Students earn points for each question he or she answers. The number of question equals the number of points they receive!
Example: Question #10 is worth 10 points!
6.If a student rolls the same number as a previous turn, they can roll again.
7.Whoever has the most points at the end of the game is the winner!
I hope your students enjoy this game as much as mine do! Check out my other fun Bloom's Taxonomy reading and math activities at the link below!
