This set of 31 activities will increase math oracy, curiosity and wonderment in your classroom.
Getting kids to really think and talk about math is key to success. I started using these activities in my classroom to get kids to look at math in different ways and to understand that sometimes... there is not just one correct answer.
These activities are meant to help get your kids really thinking about math. They will be looking for patterns,discovering similarities and discussing conclusions they come too. In many of these slides, there are more than one answer. Students will have to defend their thinking by explaining their reasoning. For many of the slides, examples of what students might come up with are shown. I left the math in nature slides blank as the answers can vary wildly depending on class.
I use this as a whole class activity once a week to build math oracy. It can also be used as task cards for early finishers to explore and write about math. That said, I find it is best use for whole group discussions.
