Everyone MUST KEEP both feet on a mat. The area in between the mats is acid and we would not want to risk losing a foot. Your job is to flip the mat so that the masking tape “X” on the bottom of the mat will now be on the top of the mat. YOU MUST NOT step in the acid. The goal is for EVERY MAT to be flipped within 5 MINUTES! Great Problem Solving Activity! UNT in partnership with TEA, Copyright © All rights reserved
