The best thing to do is to get your hands on some materials like Algebra I
Experiments published by Dale Seymour.  You need to try to do an activity
somewhere to break up the time line. You can teach a lot of material in 90
minutes, but the students don't learn and retain very well unless they are
engaged in activities and take ownership of the learning.  The activities can
be a wide variety.  

You should do what you can to reinforce basic ideas, but if the activity can 
cover a wide range of concepts, it is even better. That way you can have the 
students learning new things and practicing old ideas
at the same time!
