1.) you can turn ANYTHING into a game of Mexican Sweat.
2.) anything can be an excuse for students to get up and move
3.) anything can become an activity for fostering on topic small group talk.
4.) not everything has to be what it seems. Maybe instead of answering questions, kids are guessing questions based on their classmates answers.
5.) anything can be anything. Teachers decide if they are going to make it awesome or awful.
6.) extra work required: 2 min to cut out strips. Did it during passing period. #WorthIt
7.) the question on my head is a low level Q. But not all of them were. Low level Qs build confidence and provide cognitive breaks when kids have been working their brains hard. There is a reason I’m wearing this one and a student is wearing a question the length of a paragraph 👌🏼
