This surface area pair practice structure requires students to engage in two different roles: the sage and the scribe. The "sage" talks through the math problem, explaining each step in detail, while the "scribe" writes down each step. This structure requires students to work carefully, listen actively, and orally explain their steps. Sage an d scribes have been very effective in my classroom and are a great step to help transition students from direct instruction to independent work. The problems require students to find the surface area of rectangular prisms and cubes.
This could be used whole group or in a math center.
