## Reflection: Rules and Consequences Applications of Equations Review - Section 2: Explore

I feel like when you play any game or do any activity, you have to have rules and consequences in place so that all students know the expectations and understand what happens if they don't meet them.  For this game, I gave students a recording sheet that they were to keep their work on as we played.  As tables spun the spinner to earn points and rewards, students whose sheets were not complete up to the current problem did not get to partake in the reward for that round.  I found that to be extremely helpful in keeping some of my drifters on board with the activity.
