PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Basketball is a great way to get students excited about sports - and using real world math! This packet includes two projects for students to practice their 4th grade Common Core math skills. It works great any time of year, but you may find it an excellent addition during March Madness especially. I also found it to be a great way to take a break from test prep activities, while still reviewing word problems and several math skills at once.

The first project allows students to assume the role of Athletic Director, where they will design a team name, colors, and logo, while practicing math word problems related to running a college basketball program. Skills practiced include:

- 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication
- Long division
- Place value
- Using a table to organize data
- Area and perimeter of a rectangle
- Parallel Lines, Perpendicular Lines, Right Angles
- Equivalent Fractions, Mixed Numbers, Improper Fractions
- Lines of Symmetry

In the second project, students will visit the Basketball Hall of Fame's website in order to plan a virtual field trip, answer reading comprehension questions, and practice other Common Core math skills along the way. Skills practiced include:

- Answer questions about explicit and implicit details in a text
- 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication
- Real-life word problems
- Financial literacy, money
- Measurement (miles)
- Google maps skills

These projects are great for Early Finishers, High-Achieving Students, Partner or Group Work, or as a Whole Class assignment with some guidance and scaffolding for students who require such differentiation.

Are you looking for ways to incorporate technology, use the school's computer lab, or test out some Bring Your Own Device activities? Then the second project also gives you the chance to incorporate some technology along the way.
