Teachers at my school have this and it works wonders!
Haha...a great way to teach points of view in writing...and not to mention, it's funny!
A game for 2 or 3 players. Each player chooses a colour pencil or texta they will use in the game. Players take turns rolling the dice, using the numbers that they rolled to draw the perimeter of a rectangle or square & writing the area in the middle of the shape. Game ends when players run out of room to draw. Winner is the player who has used the largest area/most squares.
Utilizing balloons just like the house in the movie [Up], National Geographic partnered with two world class balloon pilots, engineers, and scientists to create the largest balloon cluster flight in the world. A 16 foot by 16 foot house hovered at over 10,000 feet in the air above Los Angeles for about an hour creating an incredible air show for bystanders. (Teacher: What is the area of the house?)
Way to end every day- End of lesson reflection
FREE measurement and multiplication facts lanyard cards. Students wear these all day long and call each other by the answer on their cards. Lots of fun!
Assign parents "top secret" homework the week before TEST. Their homework is to secretly send in a letter of encouragement to be given to their child before they start! Great idea! Have other teachers in the building write to students that you don't receive notes from their parents. Love this
