What does recess look like for our 5th grade class? It’s a competition to see who can jump the highest using a Swedish jump rope! Safety is a priority with this activity so rules are enforced and students must land on their feet!
What happens when 5th graders are learning the Order of Operations and the 2016 Summer Olympics are in full swing? We combine them to create an order of operations speed skating event, of course! Students were given an equation, had to solve it, then locate the correct answer on speed skates (a.k.a. plastic sticky dots). The results were amazing and students were crossing the finish line with excitement AND correct answers!
