Reflection: Student Grouping Represent Me! - Section 3: Step Show Off


When I created this lesson, I did not focus on grouping students. I noticed that some groups were able to get started, and other groups struggled a bit. It would have been better to group students according to their gender in this fun activity, but the boys had a hard time putting it all together!

Technically, it would have worked a lot better if I would have mixed the students up a bit because the girls seemed to have caught on a lot quicker.  However, the end result was quite fun. Students were able to recall different ways to represent numbers, and give sound explanations.
