I am a fifth grade teacher. Personally I have been through training regarding this exact standard. Matching the cards was a challenge for my teammates during the training. It was amazing to watch whether or not the conceptual understanding. I encourage all teachers to work through these questions before using them in classroom. It will support your conceptual understanding.
-Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards tagged.
-Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource.
-Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard.
2 strengths: This lesson has content that is focused and engaging. It has rigor and conceptual knowledge that requires critical thinking.
Opportunities for growth: One area that this lesson has opportunity is building in more scaffolds for EL students, EC students and students who struggle with being able to create a story and model it conceptually.

I am an Accelerated Teacher (interventionist & content coach) for 4th and 5th grade . I really liked the progression of this lesson as each story/task added more context to the situation. The discussion piece for this lesson is very rich. Ii would like to use this lesson as we approach Orders of Operations in class. I would use the game with my small groups. I believe the lesson has:
-Full alignment to depth and breadth of standards tagged.
-Has clear learning objectives that are achievable through completion of this resource.
-Has clear and sufficient assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress and mastery of the specified standard.
2 strengths: 1.) Students are actively engaged in an instructional task that promotes the Four C's. Task is appropriate given the age and ability of targeted learner. 2.) Key concepts, ideas, and arguments are clear and supported by an appropriate level of detail to ensure student understanding.
Opportunities for growth: I don't have much to add but would like to know about how much time would be recommended for this lesson.

I am a 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade math teacher. I really liked that this lesson is very detailed and provided students with many continuities to practice working with order of operations. This resource has partial alignment to the standard NC.5.OA.2 by covering only the “write, explain, and evaluate numerical expressions involving the four operations to solve up to two-step problems’ part of the standard and should be considered as part of a unit that would address the “commutative, associative and distributive properties” part of the standard. The lesson has clear learning objectives that are achievable through the completion of this lesson. The resource has clear assessment strategies that will accurately measure student progress of standard NC.5.OA.2 but would benefit from additional summative strategies. This resource is accurate and appropriate for the intended audience. This resource would benefit from including accommodations to engage a range of learners.
