Class Info Stations Activity for Day 1 of Class and Algebra 1 Syllabus

I read a lot of blog posts last week about people’s first day plans, since that was a prompt for one of the #SundayFunday challenges.  I can’t remember who I got the idea from, but someone posted about doing a class syllabus stations activity and my gears started turning.

This year I updated my syllabus a bit. It’s twice the length that is has been in the past (I love nothing more than 1-page documents), but I felt the need to add more information to communicate to parents.  I’m hoping that this syllabus will give parents a better understanding about what their student is doing each day in my class.

Students will work in groups of 3-ish moving station to station to answer the questions from each station’s card.  I am going to have students record their answers on a scratch paper and, once everyone is done, we will compare answers as a class and see how they did.
