I used a round-the-room activity as a closing (20-30 minute closing) for my lesson on graphing using x-and y-intercepts. The night before, my students watched a video on graphing using intercepts and how to algebraically find them. We reviewed the concept and graphed with pipe-cleaners and laminated graph paper (not in love with the exact approach I used) and then they completed this activity.
I like using this activity because the answer is there, so if they have the incorrect answer it prompts them to ask me and then I can clear up misconceptions. It is also easy to check because I make them write the answer letter in the last column. This is a great alternative to a worksheet! I have a small room and 32 freshman had enough room to complete the activity.
