Hi Cory,
Thanks for your question.

I'll give it a try and hopefully others will also. I like putting centers 
around the room where the kids circulate among them in groups. Sometimes it 
is nothing more than breaking up a worksheet into problems and providing 
manipulatives or calculators at different tables, but it gets the kids up 
and moving around. I also like projects where kids have to collect their 
own data (measure heights, do the wave and time how long it takes as a 
function of the number of kids, etc.)
