Class 106'15 used this activity during the session on Relationships (Respect, Friendship, Understanding)
The class is split into their support groups and each team is given cards with numbers and signs on each card. They are asked to make a equation and derive on a specific number that we set. They will be given sweets if they succeed in 5 minutes.
It will be arranged such that the solution can only be derived when there is another piece from another team. (Only allowed to exchange NUMBERS, so that it is easier to solve)
Rule: ALL cards must be used
Group 1: answer has to be FIVE
Cards given: (, 10, 2, ), division sign, minus sign, addition sign, 2 (to be exchanged for 1)
Answer: (10+2)/2 ‐1
Group 2: answer has to be SIX
Cards given: 3, 8, 20, minus sign, plus sign, multiplication sign, 1 (to be exchanged for 2)
Group 3: answer has to be TWO
Cards given: (, ), multiplication sign, division sign, minus sign, 8, 3, 4, and 2(to be exchanged for 4)
Answer: (8x3)/4 ‐4
Group 4: answer has to be FIVE
Cards given: (, ), addition signs, division sign, 5, 2, 3, and 4 (to be exchanged for 2)
Class 107'15 used this activity during the session on Respect
1. Ask random pairs of Y1s to come up to the front
2. Ask them a simple question e.g. "What's your favourite subject?" or "What do you enjoy doing most?"
3. On the count of 3, both of the Y1s will have to answer the question at the same time.
4. Continue the game for a few more rounds.
The Y1s will be bound to have different answers, but sometimes, coincidentally, they may have the same answer. This shows that different members of the class have different likes and dislikes. Everyone is somewhat similar and different in character, so we should learn to respect each other for who we are.
