Another fun project that I used from Mary Beth Runyon and Lynn Smith from King Phillip Middle School. I started off 2012 by having students select an everyday activity and extrapolating it out for the entire year using a unique measure. I hung the student posters throughout the school. It was fun seeing students from all the grades stopping at individual posters and checking them out...(I think they got a big kick out of my 10 yards of wrinkle cream that I use annually!) Just another fun way to use math to learn a little bit more about your students. I found out a lot about time my students spent doing chores, gaming, homework, and more!

Hi Christy! I'm going to steal this! How fun, thank you!!

ReplyDeleteI might steal this and use it with a proportion lesson in 6th grade! I might pass it along to the 7th grade teachers to use with scientific notation. How fun! :)

ReplyDeleteTold you I'd steal your idea (and thanks of course to Mary Beth Runyon and Lynn Smith). Thanks again! My kids did "A SCHOOL Year Is..."
