Digital Walkabouts Template


The walkabouts or walk arounds are one of my favorite classroom activities.  I love having students up and working, it also provides a nice visual of who is struggling.  These digital walkabouts are similar but are done on the computer and a click about is probably a better name for them. A template is below with instructions on how to add your content.  If you want one that's already made you can find those here

To create one you pick a shape for your answer cards and create the amount of cards that you want.  I typically create 15-20 questions depending on the answers.  For example, order of operations answers are smaller than combine like terms answers so I would have more order of operations cards.  Once you have all of your answer cards you will need to put the answers on them in a random order, I use the equatio extension to do this.  Next create a question slide, on this slide you will want a shape or image that links back to the answer cards slide.  I normally but the shape on the bottom right and label it back to answer board. After you pick your shape and label it you will link it by clicking on it, click link, and pick the answer card slide.  Once you have it linked duplicate it for each question so 20 questions would mean 19 duplicates, 15 questions would mean 14 duplicates.  By linking that shape before duplicating, it will be link on all of your question slides.  Next, you will put all of your questions on the slides in order.  The final step is the tricky part, you will link the answers to the slides. Insert a shape that will cover one of your answer cards, make it transparent, and the border transparent.  The last questions answer card should be linked to the first question slide. The first questions answer should be linked to the second question slide and so on.  Put this transparent shape over each answer card and link it to the correct question slide.  I put a done option at the bottom of the answer board and have a slide at the very end for them to submit their work by Google Form.  Share your activity with students in presentation mode

If you would prefer a pre-made template here is a copy just update it with your own content.

Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template

  This template is set for 3 sets of answers.  I have the answers that are currently set, you will need to reformat them to use with your content.   Baby Yoda Pixel Art Template Be on the lookout for this activity given 2 ordered pairs and asking for slope, y-intercept, and the equation of a line.  I'm also formatting this for converting between percents, decimals, and fractions.  If you want to reformat it before I post the above activities here is how. 

Long Division in Google Docs

  I was making a long division worksheet for my students in Google Docs when I realized that it wasn't under equations. Here's how to insert it.  This does not look very pretty so I have another video on how I do it in Google Sheets which takes longer but looks nicer. 

Blooket Game

  A week ago my students kept asking to play Blooket so I looked into it.  Blooket is much like Kahoot and Gimkit but they earn money.  Blooket has several different game modes and the students LOVE IT.  Once a student has been eliminated they will keep playing to earn more gold which they can use to buy rare items.  Each week Blooket has a theme and those rare items can be bought for the week and then they are gone; the items include accessories or special characters they can play as.  My students will play for hours if we let them.  When we finish a game they are ready for another round.  Blooket has a FREE version which has been enough for my class but you can also upgrade to a paid version.  They have games that are already made or you can create a new game.   My students love the battle royale mode and the gold quest the best.  If you haven't given it a try I would highly suggest it.
