Bundle of 32 editions of Football Fractions Performance Task for 3rd grade

In the Football Fractions Performance Task, students use real data on their favorite football team to practice creating and comparing fractions. Students take on the role of a data analyst and look at the data on drives and plays to advise the coach on team decisions.

32 different editions or versions of this Performance Task are included so students can work with the edition they are most interested in, or an appropriate edition can be chosen for the class. The editions include all 32 NFL teams (see full list below) all of which all require students to work with different real data.

This Performance Task could be completed for one level (explained below) in one lesson only or could be extended with the other levels across 2-3 lessons.

What’s included in this Performance Task:

* Teacher Guide – Get an overview of the Performance Task, including helpful suggestions for use and the skills and standards alignment.

* Level 1 Activity – Laying the foundation. Students start by practicing a key skill matched to a math standard. This portion of the lesson could be used alone to practice this skill.

* Level 2 Activity – Adding some complexity. Students integrate a different skill or set of skills which they apply to the context of the task.

* Challenge Activity – Bring on the critical thinking! Students are stretched to reason with math and data to come to conclusions working at Webb's Depth of Knowledge levels 3-4. They might work in groups or this could be used as an extension activity.

* Finale Activities – Extend the learning. Each Performance Task also includes a selection of options to extend the math lesson into another subject (usually ELA).

* Complete Answer Key – All Performance Tasks come with a complete answer key for all activities.

* Job Background – Each Performance Task enables students to picture themselves in a real world career. Information about the career is given, including entry-level education, median pay, and job outlook.
