18 - Please Do Now

by Chelsea Nilsson

Prior to assessments, I like to offer students creative and often silly "Would you rather" questions or logic puzzles to get their wheels turning. Attached you will find one possible Do Now for use with this lesson; however, you should feel free to alter it to fit your classroom norms and routines.
