The students will be split up into small groups. They will work through the 3 different tasks at their own pace. As teams complete a task, they will be prompted to draw a puzzle piece from you. (They have to be able to complete a Quizizz to a certain degree of accuracy in order to collect a puzzle piece.)
Task 1 – Measuring to the nearest ¼ in and conversions - They need to enter the words they created (Mathematics you are so close) in the Google doc.
-After letting them draw a puzzle piece, hand them 1 copy of the Quizizz Task 2 and encourage everyone in the group to log on to the quiz
Task 2 – Reasonable measurements - At least 1 team member needs to have a score of 87% or better on the Quizizz in order to be able to draw ONE puzzle piece for the team
-After letting them draw a puzzle piece, hand them Task 3
Task 3 – Line Plots - At least 1 member of the team needs to have 100% on the Quizizz to draw ONE total puzzle piece for the team
-After letting them draw a puzzle piece, the team can start cracking the codes on the completed puzzle and unlock some locks!
