pieces per team per day for their quota.)
4. Each team will need a recorder for each day’s work. The recorder will keep a tally of the number of pieces his/her team puts together during that day. Each team recorder will make a daily work log to record the daily progress of each team and will find their overall (cumulative) progress each day on the project. This shows how each team is doing on keeping up with the quotas assigned to them.
Assessment Work real examples from the work logs on the board and check for understanding by giving the learners a short quiz. The class puzzle was 1000 pieces. It was completed in eight days, five days ahead of schedule.
Practitioner Reflection Anytime learners can work in groups, it strengthens the class. This project gave learners the chance to work on something a little different while learning valuable work skills and atti- tudes. Display the finished product in your room. We used Mod Podge to seal the puzzle on cardboard. It was easy and inexpensive to do this instead of framing. I would probably use a dif- ferent puzzle for each team the next time to make the project a little more competitive. As it was, the class felt good about the project it completed together.
