Example Tasks
Math: 4th Grade Close to
1,000 game:
Day 1: Students play game. Discuss strategies as they work.
Day 2: 1) While students are playing call "STOP".
2) Students record the 6 cards in front of them & the number
their chip is on.
3) Students write what their next move will be & explain (on
paper) why they think that is their next best move.
4) Students share their writing with a partner.
5) Encourage partners to listen carefully and ask for
6) Select 1-2 partners & ask them to read practices 3 & 6
8) Ask group to listen for evidence that partners 'constructed a
viable argument' & 'attended to precision while doing so'.
9) Have students share connections between their work & the
2 practices highlighted.
Math: 3rd Grade: Franik's
Marbles SAB 55
After students have completed the
work on pages 54-55 ask, "Is it possible to
start with more marbles than your partner
on the first day, but end up with less on
the 10th day? How?"
Then ask students to make their case
using examples or evidence from the work
they've been doing this week. Have
students write these in their journals.
Third Grade Argumentation
Sample Social Studies
Your class has been given the job of deciding
what to do with one large piece of land that is
the same size as your school’s playground.
Where is the best place you would put the land
(in a city, suburb, or rural community)?
Explain why you would put the land in that
community, and what you would do with the
land. Support your claim with evidence from
the texts and/or video.
