Group 1 Activity: The Math Teachers

______________________________________________________________________________

Scenario: Ms. Ruiz is absent today, and Ms. Ezidore has asked that each one of you work with a student to teach them how to multiply using one of the multiplication strategies. How would you explain the process? What steps would you all give your classmates to ensure they understand how to multiply? Create a mini-lesson to model the process. You may create a power point presentation with voice, a Prezi, or you may just simply teach the process using an ActivInspire Flipchart. Be creative. Use the rubric to evaluate your lesson.
Your lesson should include the following components: 1. Anticipatory Set: Provide an explanation of what multiplication is. 2. Model: A demonstration of the methods that may be used to solve multiplication problems. a. Your are required to choose only one method: the old way or the box method) b. During this stage, your group should demonstrate each step by completing two examples. 3. Guided Practice/Independent Practice: Provide one problem for the class to complete. 4. Closing: Your group may put a video or review the stages.

NOTE: YOUR GROUP HAS 30 MINUTES TO COMPLETE THIS TASK. DO NOT SPEND TOO MUCH TIME DESIGNING YOUR PRESENTATION. FOCUS ON THE CONTENT!

Group 2 Activity: The Social Studies Teachers

WITH YOUR GROUP, decide what person you want to make a timeline on. a. Thomas Edison b. Barack Obama c. John Hanson

For example if you select Barack Obama, type his name. You may also upload a picture from the Internet by saving it to the desktop from Google. c. Click Go. d. Begin adding events. Be sure to label the event and put the correct date. You may add pictures, but I wouldnt take too much time doing this step. Poster Timeline Instructions: 1. Have someone draw a neat, straight line in the MIDDLE of the poster going all the way across. 2. START with the EARLIEST DATE first. Write the date with a dark print (using a marker) Write the event right below the date. 3. You should continue with the dates of important events in that persons life.

NOTES: DO NOT TAKE ALL OF YOUR 30 MINUTES TO RESEARCH DATA!! TIP: EACH

GROUP MEMBER CAN FIND TWO FACTS.


ALL TOGETHER 10 DATES SHOULD BE ON YOUR TIMELINE OF THAT PERSON INCLUDING 10 IMPORTANT EVENTS THAT GO WITH EACH DATE. PLEASE BE SURE THE DATES ARE IN ORDER!!! USE THE RUBRIC TO CHECK YOUR FINAL TIMELINE.

Group 3 Activity: The Science Teachers __________________________________________________________________ Scenario: Like humans, frogs undergo life changes. They begin as eggs, but become frogs. This does not happen overnight. There are stages in the frog's life cycle. Your task is to use information from literature and the Internet to: o Identify each stage by reading the information provided to you all by your teacher. o Complete the graphic organizer provided by your teacher placing the events in order.
