Michelle's students determine which supermarket is offering the better deal for bananas. Once students complete the problem, Michelle asks the students to stand up and pair up with a partner that has a different answer.

Strategy Implementation Questions

Questions to think about when implementing the strategy

- How could you use movement to help students engage in more effective partner talk?
- How could you modify this strategy to meet the needs of your students?

Lesson Notes

The students are going to complete the following problem: In this week’s ad, Tony’s Finer foods advertises bananas on sale for 5 lbs for $4.45. Jewel has them on sale for $.95/pound. Which store has the better deal? This problem will reactivate prior knowledge. The students will be required to use a model to support their answer (SMP 4). If students finish early, they can explain their solution in words. This can also be used as a formative assessment.
