    Probability is always fun, depending on if your class can handle the manips required with a sub. Get them rolling dice, spinning spinners, flipping coins, etc.

    For a more structured lesson - unit conversion is a good one.

    What about a couple of problem-solving activities they can work on independently or with a partner or group. Look for problems that can be solved using a variety of strategies--looking for and continuing a pattern, making an organized list, working backwards, etc. The students can share the strategies they used to solve the problems.
