Order of Operations Olympics

IMG_9389What 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!
