Sidewalk Scoot

It is so difficult to keep your students focused and engaged those last few weeks of school when they are already dreaming of summer and being outdoors.  I was checking out Pinterest when I saw this amazing version of Scoot from The Primary Gal.  I knew it would be the perfect way to get my kiddos outside while still working on content.



We have been working on elapsed time in our class, and it has been very tricky for some of my kiddos, so I decided to use this activity to give them a little more practice.

First, I had each student create their own elapsed time problem on an index card.



I checked their work and gave them a number on their card that corresponded to the answer key that I made with one of the sheets.



Then I had the students take their card and NEATLY write their question on a section of sidewalk.





After everyone wrote down their question, it was time to solve the problems SCOOT style.  Each child moved from question to question answering them on their recording sheet.













You can grab a free copy of The Primary Gal's recording sheet by visiting her blog post here.

I love how versatile this activity could be!  You can use it to review so many different skills.  I am looking forward to trying this again with other subjects and skills.  A few ideas I am thinking about include:

* Practicing Long Division
* Double Digit Multiplication
* Math Facts
* Perimeter and Area
* Parts of Speech
* Idioms and Other Figurative Speech

What skills would you use it for?
