⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “My students loved this unit! We even took a field trip to a mini golf course. Then we created a mini one and invited the whole school!”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ "I used this as a year-end project with my 7th grade math class. They absolutely loved it! We actually constructed our course using pizza boxes and then played the course using actual golf balls and dowel rods (shot pool style). They had a blast! I am going to expand the project next year to create a complete course (we only had 6 holes this year) next year with 6th-8th grades. Loved this!! Thanks!"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “My students loved using this resource. There were great examples for students. Students were always engaged and had fun creating their mini-golf holes.”

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ “We are still using this activity. We are slowly learning everything about mini golf and will ultimately build individual golf holes to “play” the entire course. They are so excited to design it and create their golf hole!”
