I use this in my Harry Potter 5th Grade Math Unit
at the end of the year as a review. We do the unit after spring testing as a fun review of the 5th grade math standards from the year.
This is a "broom race" activity. It gets students up and moving outside.
Additional needed materials that are not included: stopwatch, 4 brooms
Common Core Standards Covered:
CC.5.NBT.7: Divide decimals to hundredths
CC.5.MD.2: Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4,1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots.
CC.5.NBT.4: Use place value understanding to round decimals to any place.
