__Materials:__- Nerf Dart gun (shoots 6 - 8 darts)
- Suction cup darts
- laptop or computer with internet access

__Time Allotment:__- 1 class period (60 mins)
*after*quick refresher notes

Place students into four groups, as equally as possible and rotate every 10 - 15 minutes. Allow enough time for each group to complete the Nerf Gun center. All other centers can be completed at home.

__Center #1: Nerf Guns__Have one student be the "shooter" and shoot the coordinate graph. Another student is the "recorder" and records on the shooter's paper the ordered pairs. A third student will pull off the darts from the board

*after*the shooter is finished shooting and call off the ordered pairs for each dart. Additional students may help pull off and record. Rotate within the group so that each student has had a chance to do each job.

__Center #2: Coordinate Graphing__Students will complete in their group the coodinate graphing hidden picture. Remind students how to complete these and that they need to connect points as they go to create the picture.

__Center #3: Internet Resource__Students will collectively complete 25 problems on the IXL website. I have a trial subscription, but students were able to also complete this at home without a subscription and it is a GREAT resource for math!

__Center #4: Word Problem Practice__Students can collaboratively complete the problems on the provided Word Problem Worksheet (by Glencoe - Lesson 2-3)

I LOVE the Nerf gun! How fun! Thanks for this great idea! When IXL expires there are a lot of fun graphing games online that help kids practice plotting points. Our favorite is The Maze Game. http://www.shodor.org/interactivate/activities/MazeGame/

ReplyDeleteI saw this on pinterest and love the nerf idea. I hope to try it with my class in the upcoming weeks. I'll be mentioning it in a post soon.

I can't get the PDF file for the Coordinate Graphing {Math Lab: Centers} to download. Is there any way I can get it. It looks like a great lab that I would like to try!

ReplyDeleteyes I don't see the PDF file for the Coordinate Graphing either. I really like it! Any chance someone knows where to get it?

ReplyDeleteI will try and reattach tonight. Some math labs do not have a PDF because they are included in the math lab book. This lab is also a part of the lab book. :)
