Sounds like you had a huge win with the game of nim followed by a pretty typical first shot at attempting a problem based unit. It sounds like you have students who are going to take time to dig in and especially if they know you’ll eventually go back to telling them what to do next… remember – as you mentioned – telling them how to do it didn’t actually work as they shut down … so think about what questions you could ask to keep them thinking or moving forward vs telling them and you’ll gradually see progress. You’ve got this!
