Product Description

Get ready to fly into the sky because you are now an airline pilot! Students become pilots in this real-world activity and practice with elapsed time! When they complete all 10 elapsed time math challenges, they win and get a certificate saying they are now certified pilots!

If you're looking for ways to make more meaningful connections to math in the real world, this is the activity for you! Students will embark upon a day as a pilot while practicing this difficult math concept at the same time. Elapsed time can be difficult for third graders and this activity is great practice!

⭐ What is This? ⭐

Help your students become pilots in your classroom! Students complete 10 elapsed time challenges that are real-world related.

Print out all 10 country posters and all 10 aligned challenges. Distribute them around your room. Give each child a recording sheet. Explain to students that they will become pilots and will need to "fly" to complete all challenges. They have to find all the challenges you've left around the classroom and find the answers to each one. They use the recording sheet to mark off each challenge as they go.

There is also an additional writing activity where students scan the QR codes on each poster and find out 5 fun facts about each country.
