Modifying the Train Game
I shared the "Train Game" with you on my first day of school post. If you haven't read it, I've been playing the 20 Express game with my students as a 5-ish minute warm-up on Thursdays. Our first day of school was a Thursday, so I taught them to play it that day.
For the record, my students love it. And, from reading your tweets and blog posts, many of your students love it, too!
A little while back, I retweeted a #teach180 post about modifying this game to make it more math-y. But, I've decided this idea deserves its own post!
Instead of having students order the numbers 1-30, have them order -15 to +15.
How brilliant is that???
