Practice Structures: Chains Revisited

Previously, I wrote about a form of practice called Chains.  In a chain activity, students pick any card and solve the problem on it.  Then, they find the solution to that question on another card and solve that one.  This continues until all cards have been used.  Sometimes you can also run this as a scavenger hunt and put the questions up around the room.  The activity is great because it is self checking and offers a switch-up from the usual worksheet for practice.

You can read the original post here for more information.  In that post, I included two example activities.  The first was for properties of parallelograms.  And the second was for finding vertices of parabolas.

Here are two new examples:
Grade 3 - Telling Time to the Minute
Grade 7 - Adding and Subtracting Rational Numbers

Enjoy.  I'd love to hear about it if you try any of these or make your own :)
