****IMPORTANT**** To do this activity you will also need to download Secret Mission: 2D shapes official mission sheet and key
This is a fun way for students to practice their reading, listening and geometry! Each student receives a secret mission sheet. The PowerPoint presentation outlines the materials they will need (sheet, sharpened pencil, red, orange, blue and yellow crayon). After the I Can statement and materials, the slides are on a 25 second transition timer. The directions will pop up and students must silently read the directions and then do what they say on their paper. For example: color the small triangle red. All directions are simple and one sentence. The transitions also have a “chime” sound, in case students are looking down at their paper when the switch happens. The slides will transition automatically so the teacher can be monitoring students and providing help as needed.
The students then turn in their paper to see if they successfully completed the mission! A key is included for easier grading. You could tie this to an incentive as well and students who successfully complete the mission could earn incentives or unlock certain prizes.
