Interactive school posters offer students a variety of fun and interesting ways to apply their knowledge and insight in some of their classes. The Wizards, Witches, and Wishes Activity contains diverse mathematical concepts through advanced algebra, as well as some historical content.
Use the two 8.5" x 11" colored masters to produce enough colored back-to-back copies for a classroom set. It is advisable to have the copies laminated for future use. The " Wizards, Witches, and Wishes" activity could be used as either an extended individual or group challenge.
Make sure that the students who will be participating in this activity read the Background and Procedure listed on the poster and also listed below.
Background: Because of your intellectual curiosity, you have been selected to be part of a charter tour investigating a European enchanted forest. As soon as you arrive in a rustic village, which borders the enchanted forest, you embark on an exhilarating adventure to overcome the perils of the forest.
Procedure: Carefully read the information given for each encounter. Then, using only the materials and information available, record your response(s) for each encounter. When completed, give your completed packet to your instructor who will determine whether or not you have overcome your encounters in the forest.
When the activity is completed, each student should turn in the completed responses to the instructor. To enhance student motivation, a "Protector of the Forest" certificate is included as a black line master.
