Back to School!

In Mrs. Toth’s 7th grade math classes, students worked on a collaborative activity called 100 Numbers. The goal was to find the numbers from 1 to 100 in order. The task sounds easy enough, but students have to take turns circling the numbers in order. Over the course of a few rounds students learn to work as a team, and to look for patterns to find their numbers. It was awesome to see how excited the students were, and how well they worked together. It was a great start to the new year!
