PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Students read research articles based on exercise and the benefits in children. (Teachers will need to provide their own articles but there are lots on the internet.) Students will write a persuasive letter and then design their own playground. There is lots of math in this think tank--geometry, area, perimeter, measurement, etc! This one is worth every penny!
The graph paper is printed from http://math.about.com. Each piece is 17x22.

I created this Think Tank for intervention time. While I am meeting with small groups, the students that don't need extra tutoring are working on Think Tanks. They can be done in groups or alone. If they are working in groups, each part of the lesson specifically states the expectations. Every Think Tank lesson has 5 parts to it: read, write, create, extend and I'm done.
I hope you enjoy the lesson and I hope it allows your students that don't need intervention that brain enrichment that they need/desire.
