Earth Day activity. Celebrate Earth Day with cool facts about our beautiful planet and a some fun math word problems. On each pennant is a fact about Earth and a word problem to go along with it. For example, one problem asks students to find how long it would take a Monarch butterfly to fly 2,500 miles given that he flies 50 miles per day.
**There are 2 pennant sizes included in this download, depending on how you would like to display your students' final work. In the original set, there are 2 pennants per page. A larger set of pennants with 1 per page has also been added. The same answer sheet and key is used for both. You may need to set your printer to "shrink oversized pages" when printing.
Each pennant has a picture to color that relates to the word problem. All word problems can be solved with addition, subtraction, multiplication or division. Once a pennant is complete, it can be colored and then hung along a string in your classroom to celebrate Earth Day.
Included in this activity are 20 pennants, an answer sheet (if you would like students to also record their answers for credit) and an answer key. Each group of students can be given a set of pennants, scissors and either glue, tape or a stapler. Students can be in charge of cutting out the pennants. Groups can compete to see which group can complete the most pennants or your entire class can add pennants to one string as they complete each one. You may also choose to have your students color their pennants to add to your classroom decor.
*pennants have a mix of either customary or metric measurements
