Product Description

Are you looking for a way to reinforce number sense concepts in an engaging way that helps your students make connections? “Be a Superhero” is a real-life math project where students will complete ten different math-related tasks.

These activities can be used as a package, or in isolation. They work great as a math center, small-group lesson, early finisher activity, or partner activity.

Take a look at what you’ll find inside this math project:

You’ve known for a long time that you were “special.” There was that time that you were able to lift a fallen tree up when you were building a fort. And then there was that basketball game where you jumped up to shoot, and felt like you were flying. You haven’t told anyone about your superpowers yet, but it’s time to put them to good use! You’ll be a real-life superhero! Let’s get your outfit planned!

You know that you can fly, but you’re going to need to practice before you can help people!

Skills: more and less, base ten blocks, problem-solving

Lifting heavy objects is a big part of being a superhero! You’ll need to practice so that you can use this skill to save people!

Skills: number words, comparing & ordering, problem-solving

TASK#4: FIRST DAY ON THE JOB

You’ve lifted! You’ve flown! Now it’s time for your first day on the job. Use the number clues to solve each message.

Skills: addition, subtraction, solving unknowns, part/part/whole, place value, more & less

A local apartment building is on fire and you need to rescue the people who live there!

Skills: ordering, part/part/whole, representing numbers

TASK #6: A CAT IN A TREE

You get the superhero signal saying that there’s a cat stuck in a tree. It’s time to help!

Skills: problem-solving, skip-counting

As a superhero it is important to be familiar with your city. This will help you know how to get places fast when someone needs help.

Skills: addition, subtraction, problem-solving, base ten representations

You just keep getting faster and faster! How fast can you fly? Let’s solve the mystery picture to see!

Skills: place value, more/less, proportion, addition, subtraction

There are four forest fires burning right now! But you have the power to stop them all!

A huge flood is heading right for your city! You’re the only one that can possibly stop it!

Life as a superhero is not easy, but it sure is worth it! Here are some numbers from the last month.

Skills: addition, subtraction, base ten representation, more/less

WAYS TO USE MATH PROJECTS IN YOUR CLASSROOM:

Math projects are an ideal way to consolidate learning. I recommend using them as an engaging activity AFTER skills have been learned rather than during learning. You will likely find that engagement is very high and that your students ask to do more of these!

There are many ways to use math projects in your classroom. Some of the most popular are:

• a small-group or pairs activity

• a guided math activity to allow you to see where your students are struggling

• a fun, rewarding way to engage your early finishers

• a low-prep, easy-to-implement activity for a substitute teacher

Enjoy!
