We continue our Low Floor High Ceiling series in which an activity is chosen – it starts by assigning simple age- appropriate tasks which can be attempted by all the students in the classroom. The complexity of the tasks builds up as the activity proceeds so that students are pushed to their limits as they attempt their work. There is enough work for all, but as the level gets higher, fewer students are able to complete the tasks. The point however, is that all students are engaged and all of them are able to accomplish at least a part of the whole task.
