Reflection: Complex Tasks 10 Elves - Section 2: 10 Elves


This activity was rigorous, and ended up being too difficult for some of my students. My parent volunteer really had her work cut out for her! There was a portion of students who with guidance, understood the task. However, I think next year, this task will only be reserved for my students who have a solid number sense foundation. I still think it is good to push the limits sometimes, but I definitely do not want to frustrate my students.
