**37. SOLVING SAFARI**(Discussion, Questioning)

**Description:**This protocol keeps students engaged as they seek and solve problems around the room.

**Application:**Use this protocol in all subjects, especially mathematics.

**Process:**Create up to sixteen problems and solutions. Prepare large index cards by placing a problem on one side and a mismatched solution on the other. Be sure that the direction of the writing is readable when the card is flipped up. Be mindful, too, that if two cards have both problems and solutions for each other, students will boomerang and not be able to advance to a new problem. Tape the cards around the room with the answers displayed. For the actual activity, direct partnered students to find a card to start, flip up, read the problem, talk to partner to solve, agree on solution, and find solution posted. Repeat process until all problems and solutions have been worked and answered by every team.
