Great Cooperative Problem Solving Game
Step 1: Students sit in a group of 4 -5. They have 4-8 math problems on index cards face down in front of them.
Step 2: The Caller “Picks a problem.”
Step 2: Everybody writes out the answer on their whiteboards and then places their individual boards face down in front of them.
Step 3: Caller says “Show what you know!”
Step 4: Everybody shows their answer. If everybody got it right, the group gets a point and the card is taken out of the pile.
Step 5: For the next turn, a new person becomes the caller and play continues.
*I would scaffold this by sometimes letting students talk about what they wrote before they put their boards down.
