I loved doing classroom transformations when I taught elementary school, so I am excited to share that I finally tried one with my middle schoolers! We used football decor to prepare for our inequalities quiz. All of my supplies was CHEAP from Wal-Mart, but here are some similar things on Amazon.
I even wore one of my favorite shirts from Trendy Teacherz– we interrupt this lesson to bring you football season! Use the code BROOKLYNSBRIGHTEST for 15% off!
Students were placed into groups of four to complete 4 downs aka tasks to prep for our quiz. I let them decide on a team name for fun! As students completed each ‘down’ one player of the team had to complete a problem. I had them write their name next to the problem for accountability. All players were supposed to watch for errors. Once they were finished, I came to check their answers before they started the next down.
The third and fourth downs were identifying the inequality on a graph & then actually graphing an inequality. When they completed all four downs, they put their team name on a ticket & placed it in the football ticket jar. When the timer went off for the game, I drew for a ticket. The winning team members each got a mini stress football. My middle schoolers absolutely loved it!!!
