Rocket

Total views: 2390
Summary:

Students spin the dice and make a number from the numbers on the dice.
The students then record the number on a level of the rocket where they think it best fits between 10 and 67.
If a player can not place a number they have thrown, they miss that turn.
Extension:
Students throw the dice three times to make a three digit whole number and place that number between 110 and 667.

Great idea!!

Ngaire, thank you for posting the Rocket lesson to MimioConnect! I really like the lesson idea and think it is a great way to provide practice for your students in ordering numbers - very creative!! They must enjoy rolling the dice to create numbers and then deciding if their number will fit in the sequence!

To boost the potential of this lesson even further, what do you think of adding additional activity pages before each rocket page that introduce the concept, possibly using number lines to reinforce number sequence? You want to be sure there are enough opportunities for the students to practice the concept you want them to learn, so you may even want to add an additional page for each rocket page with a similar number sequence for even more practice. You can watch this brief video on MimioConnect that will help explain this idea in detail: http://www.mimioconnect.com/content/lesson/mmlb_pd_providing_many_opport...

Keep up the great work!
