Don't miss out on March MATHness!!!!!
This resource enables students in grades 3-5 to participate in two fun, engaging reading and math activities, sure to bring the excitement of March Madness to your classroom! This resource consists of two different components.
In "Read the Room-March MATHness," students use statistic clue cards to help them answer a variety of questions. This component ties reading, writing, and math skills together!
In the mini-game, "Budget Buster," students choose three to eight teams to represent them throughout the tournament. Each team is assigned a dollar value, and students must work with a $50 budget. When one of their teams wins, they accumulate points based on their value. It is a great alternative to filling out the entire 64-team bracket!
Each year I will update this product when the new March Madness bracket is released, meaning you get a brand new resource every year!
I am positive this resource will be a SLAM DUNK with you and your students!!!!
(Note: This product is a free version of my extended product called, "March MATHness-Combo Pack: Utilizing March Madness to Engage Math Skills (CC)."
