Football Helmets, Broken Hearts,
Hot Air Balloons, Shamrocks
These are just some things that
have been part of recent math lessons.
During the week before, as well as the week after the Super Bowl, the students completed a super bowl booklet which involved many math activities. One of the activities involved plotting coordinates on a grid which resulted in a football helmet. It was extremely challenging for the students, but they persevered.
A valentine activity involved matching broken hearts to form equivalent measurements.
A hidden picture turned out to be a hot air balloon as students reinforced multiplication facts.
Most recently, the students used shamrocks to show the transformations of slide, flip, and rotate.
Throughout the month of March, they are maintaining a double line graph for the high and low temperatures. The data is being used for many other math skills.
Be sure to stop by Room 23 during the April Curriculum Fair to see these and many other projects the students have completed throughout the year.
