Level 1 Elytra Course and Rounding Base 10 Numbers
Students can enter the world has a whole group, small groups, or individually, so pick the one that works best for your class. Once the students are in the world they will encounter Mark Bigglesworth Game Show Host who will ask them if they want to start the puzzle or watch the tutorial on how to round base 10 number is Minecraft. Behind the game show host is a wall with 4 lights, if a light is on that means the course room is occupied. Students can enter each others rooms if there is peer teaching going on but try to encourage individual work. If it slow on the course have students build and round numbers on the stage.
Once inside the puzzle room the students will see a number and be asked to round it to a certain place value. The will take a picture of the number and round it by rebuilding the number with a pickaxe and document with a picture.
Students will take notes on the video and in game math models in their math notebooks.
Students who finish early will have a choice of 2 bonus activities.
1) Co-Teaching: If a student has master the idea on how to read and build a math model pair them up with a student who is still struggling and have them build and practice the math models in their own world.
2) Make a Video: Build and explain the your own math model to Mark Bigglesworth
