As we continue reviewing for "the Test", I'm constantly looking for new activities and ideas. I came across "Systems of Linear Equations Activity - Clue Game" a while back, but never got to use it! I announced to my eighth graders that we would be doing this activity last week, and I have never heard such disappointment than when I told them we were going to have to post-pone the activity until this week.
So, we picked it up today, and it was a hit! They had a blast and enjoyed every minute of it! They worked so hard and I even had students asking if they could work extra problem sets! When does that ever happen?
When my last period seventh graders came in, they wanted to know when they would get to play CLUE... I guess I'm writing a set for them :-)
