Group Projects Part 2

 I enjoy doing group projects but I understand my student’s concerns. One of the biggest concerns is that 1-2 students do the entire project for the group and everyone earns the same grade. 

Along with giving roles, I tried a new system for submitting work this semester and it worked really well.  

The first step was to set up individual submission deadlines.  Each student had to submit their work each week.  The students had to submit their work before they could view their peers.  The second step was a group decision deadline.  The students then needed to review everyone’s answer in the group and submit 1 group answer.  

The student’s were graded on their individual response and given feedback. They were then graded on their participation in the group discussion and groups response.

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. 

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. 

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.
