WANT AN INTERESTING WAY TO GET YOUR STUDENTS INTRIGUED WITH MATH?

Students are generally familiar with The Jungle Book movie and story, right? This leads to quick engagement with the original classic novel, upon which these math questions are based. As the students talk about the math and how to solve they also get caught up in the story and can’t wait to continue!

The Jungle Book story is used to captivate your students while they are learning math. This fantasy story includes Mowgli and his jungle friends and foes. There is Father Wolf, Shere Khan the Tiger, Mowgli, Baloo the bear, Snake, Bagheera the black panther, Haiti the wild elephant, Kaa the constrictor snake, and many more. More importantly, it helps learning math to be fun and interesting.

Students color graph paper blocks as the teacher reads each word problem. You can display the problems on the white board if you desire, as students begin to read and can benefit from the print. Students receive immediate feedback from you as they work.

They can be used for RTI groups to build growth with your students.

You can copy them and assign to students for a challenge or when they are “done.” They have been so excited about this series they have asked me to write more math problems with other novels.

A GREAT WAY TO RAISE THEIR BENCHMARK SCORES, BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY... THEY LEARN TO LOVE MATH!

► Overview ◄

Students who have a variety of skill levels can successfully work through these word problems. This unit is engaging for reluctant learners, typical learners, and advanced learners. In addition, there are versions of this unit for other grade levels. This allows you the option of having different levels of the unit for different levels of learners.

This unit is a set of 55 constructed-response problems that cover the entire story line of the "Jungle Book" through math problems. There is an answer key in the back of the unit.

Your students can solve engaging, child-friendly problems as they are learning math.

This theme based unit engages your students with the wonderful classic story while increasing their mathematical reasoning.
