Now, if I can get a group of 12 and 13 year-old boys to be excited about creating a hopscotch video, I have to be doing something right ... ;)
When we finished "playing" I let the students use the chalk to create and solve problems - on the walls of the school! They had a blast with this - we did have to clean the walls when we were done, but it was a hot day, and bringing out the hose was even more fun.
Every single student in my class can recite the steps of order of operations - even the students working on a modified math program. We had so much fun with this lesson - and it just reminds me how important it is to get my students up and moving (not just for the kinesthetic learners, but for everyone).
What is your best way to get your students up and moving while learning new concepts?
