HOW TO PLAY:
-Print student recording sheets. Decide if you would like for the students to review independently or as a team. Make sure you have a small playground ball or piece of trash. Tape off line(s) for the students to shot from on the floor. (I typically do a 1 point line, a 2 point line and a 3 point line.

-Decide how you would like the problems presented. You can present the problems on a smart board or you can print the problems and give each team on card at a time. (You might consider placing the cards in an envelope so that they’re opened at the same time. It also adds a level of excitement to the game!) You don’t have to do every set of problems. Use the slides/cards that apply to your curriculum.

-Show/present the problems to all groups at the same time. Students will race to solve the problems correctly. In order to play trashketball, all students must participate. If not, those students do not get to shoot the trash into the trashcan.

-When the team/individual feel that they have all of the answers correct, they will quickly bring one answer sheet to the teacher (or designated student) to be checked. If all of the problems are correct, they get to shoot first and get 3 shots. If they are not all correct, they must go back to make corrections.

-When each group has finished and have the problems correct, they may take their shots at the trashcan. I typically give the first group(s) to finish 3 shots, the middle group(s) to finish 2 shots and the last group(s) to finish 1 shot. They can choose to shoot from different point lines if you choose to allow them to do this.

-Points are kept on a poster or white board. Each set of questions is a new round. A game of trashketball is typically 4 rounds long but it can vary depending on the time that you have. You can choose to give the winning team a prize (homework pass, piece of candy, behavior coupon) or a simple congratulations.
