In this SMART Board activity, your students will complete 10 fun and engaging challenges regarding rates, ratios and proportional reasoning. There is also an 11th bonus challenge.
This "Rates Relay" incorporates all students in your class, making it an inclusive activity, regardless of the differences in students' abilities.
This activity is low prep and includes materials you probably already have in your classroom.
Following each challenge, is a question or two to add depth to students' understanding, and to extend the lesson, so that it is not "just fun" - although it is a fun activity for students!
A brief 2 question formative assessment follows the "relay" to assess your students' understanding.
Solutions are included where applicable.
You may choose to do all of the challenges at once, or sprinkle them in, periodically, throughout your unit.
