To start, students will take a some time to design a super hero and a logo. They can use colored pencils and markers if they choose to.
2 Direct Instruction
I will then inform the students to create enemies that their super hero will battle. These enemies will range from easy to harder in difficulty. The easier enemies will be easier math problems like addition and subtraction and the harder enemies will be fraction related.
I will also have the students creat a boss enemy that is a problem that is very difficult for them to solve.
Students can use various math related websites to help them in coming up with appropriate problems.
3 Guided Practice
When all the students complete their work, I will have them trade with other students in the class so that they can all work on someone elses problems.
4 Independent Practice
The students will be working on defeating the enemies that other students have created.
To finish the lesson, I will put a set of "enemies" that I have created on the projector for us to defeat as a class. This will give students even more practice with the material. This is also a good way to review for an assessment.
