2 Methods for Review:

Task Cards:
Teacher Preparation:
• Download a QR reader to your smart device(s).
• Print & cut out each card (cardstock is recommended) per pair/group/individual.
• Laminate cards so that they can be used again and again (optional).
• Print an answer sheet per student/group/pair and pass out to students.
• Store cards in a plastic baggie or punch a hole in the top corner of each card and place them on a ring.
• Divide class into groups/pairs or have them work individually.

Students should:
• Read each task card.
• Record their answers for each one on the answer sheet with the corresponding number.
• Check their answers using a QR reader on a smart device.
• Shade/circle the check mark for each problem they answered correctly or the X for the problems they answered incorrectly.

SCOOT:
Teacher Preparation:
• Print & cut out 1 copy of each card (cardstock is recommended).
• Laminate cards so that they can be used again and again (optional).
• Print an answer sheet per student and pass out to students.
• Place 1-2 cards on each desk face down (depending on number of students & time available to play). You may want to put the # on the back of each card to make it clearer for students which question/answer they are working on.

Directions for Play:
• Students flip over the task card(s) and answer the question(s), writing the answer(s) on their answer sheet.
• When you yell “scoot,” they flip the card(s) back over and move to the next question/desk.
• Once everyone has gone to each desk and gotten a chance to answer each question, you can end the game.
• Review the answers they wrote on their answer charts. Allow a student to scan each QR code & check together as a class. Or, allow students to self-check their responses using a QR reader on a smart device in groups/pairs or individually depending on the number of devices you have available to use.
• Students should shade/circle the check mark for each problem they answered correctly or the X for the problems they answered incorrectly.

We hope you enjoy them, and we'd love to hear your feedback! :)
