Reflection: Joy Unit Review Game: Trashball - Section 1: Review Game


Math class should always be a happy place but I notice more smiles on the days that we play review games. There is nothing better than having a student hit the 50 point shot during Trashball and having the class erupt in applause!

I definitely write the review game questions to prepare students for the upcoming assessment, but it is also a time to have some fun and get excited about a paper ball falling into a garbage can. I instill in students that they will get nothing from winning this game and the objective is to practice their math and have some fun as a class.
