Cooperative Learning Activity: Jigsaw
We’re in the middle of rational numbers in Math class. For our lesson on “dividing rational numbers” I decided to use an old school cooperative learning activity called ‘jigsaw’ wherein students are put into groups. Each group has a specific job which is later presented or shared with the class. Some jigsaw activities can last the whole class period. For today’s lesson, I decided to have it be pretty short and sweet to allow for independent practice.
