Subject: The Chain Reaction

Kids love this. It gives them a chance to get up and walk around while spurring them to get the right answer: Start by putting an example on the board or by going over a homework example. Go over to the desk of the first person who raises her hand. Examine the answer. If it's not correct, go on to someone else. If the student has the correct answer, say "Go" thus telling the student to take your place and check for additional correct answers. As more students are found to have the correct answer they all join in checking the others. When you deem it necessary to get them back to their seats say "Stop." Before starting for the first time, explain the rules of the game.
