Drag and Drop Activities (or Cut and Paste) using Google Slides


Engaging yet guided activities such as a drag and drop allow students to work at their own pace but not become overwhelmed.

Domain and range is a topic that is often difficult for students to grasp and the last thing I want is a free response form where they aren't getting quick feedback.  A drag and drop activity is a great way for them to check their understanding.  When using a drag and drop activity the students have a limited number of answer choices and thus if their answer is not there, they must seek help or rework the problem.  

As a teacher a drag and drop is a quick check they can share their response with you and you can look over it quickly and discuss any changes that need to be made.

In the classroom, I would print this on 2 slides per page and have them complete it as a cut and paste.  The benefits of using 2 slides per page reduces the amount of paper needed but also limits their choices for each question.  

Drag and drops are easier to make than they appear.  I've already made several drag and drop activities you are welcome to use in your classroom: slope, zeros and intercepts, and domain, range, is it a function.

Pixel Art with Math Problems

    A pixel art activity provides instant feedback and some excitement.  My students enjoy doing these because they can see right away if they are doing the work correct and they also like to race to figure out the picture first.    Integer Operations Add/Subtract Pixel Art This is an online activity where students complete addition and subtraction of integers. The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio
