Reviewing with Stations Mazes

04 March 2014
I feel like I've been reviewing with my classes so much lately!

In Geometry, my students just took their test over quadrilaterals.  I have several activities in my files, but I wanted to do something to review that kept the kids active.  It's been such dreary weather here lately that I'm sure they would start falling asleep if they weren't up and moving!  I decided to use a stations maze.  In a "stations maze", I create stations with a multiple choice question on each station.  The answer to each station points them to the next station they should visit.  The students keep track of the order that they visited the stations and I only check the order of the stations.

I hung the stations up all around my room on the walls and the whiteboards.  I don't hang the stations in order; the kids think I do this to be sneaky.  I try to alternate problems that take longer to solve with quick ones.  That way, the kids aren't bumping into each other at every station.  It also helps keep the groups moving throughout the classroom instead of congregating around one or two stations for a long time.  I like to hang some of the problems with longer calculations on the whiteboard with a marker underneath.

This is my Quadrilaterals Stations Maze that I have listed on Teachers Pay Teachers.

In Algebra 2 Honors, we had been reviewing polynomials for a few days (we had gotten ahead of the course pacing).  I decided to do a stations maze (download the file) to break things up.  The maze I made has some review problems interspersed; I like to keep them on their toes.
