Summer Learning

 


Learning doesn't have to stop just because it's summer.  You can incorporate math into daily things that you do.  For example, if you are driving to the beach and it takes 2 hours to get there, ask them how many minutes it would take. If they are older, you make it more challenging and ask how many seconds or have them calculate how long it would take if you went 65mph vs 60mph. 

Often times, I hear that kids eat so much more when they are home.  The kitchen is a great place to practice fractions, addition, and multiplication.  One way to do this is to give them only 1 tsp measuring item and 1 cup.  I would recommend using the 1/2 tsp and the 1/4 cup.  Look through recipes together and have them make the recipe using only those 2 measuring items.  This is a good way to discuss how to make other measurements from what you have.  

These are just a few way to incorporate math into the summer months.

The students will input their answer in the table and a color will appear if they are correct. When the students are finished they will have a picture.   Distribute Equations Pixel Art This in an online activity that has students solve equations with the distributive property. Several of the equations also require knowledge of combining like terms after distributing. Students solve the problem and type the answer in the table, if they are correct a color will appear. When the table is filled they will have a picture. One Step Equations Pixel Art This activity is done online in Google Sheets. The students solve each equatio
