Description

This is a “GROWING” packet.

So that you can continue to use it each leap year, I’ve included center bookmarks through the year 2032, and will continue to up-date.

This bookmark provides a quick, easy and fun math “craftivity” to do on leap day.

Run off the middle bookmark section on a variety of colors of construction paper.

Print either the full-color, or the black and white “color me” bookmark picture options, giving children a choice of 10.

Students can simply put just one graphic on the top of their bookmark, or mix and match, choosing a picture for the bottom as well.

Check out the PREVIEW for samples.

Have students analyze the list of dates that leap years have occurred in the past. Do they see a mathematical pattern?

Using that data, ask them to venture a guess as to when they think that the next leap year will be.

Leap years generally occur every 4 years, so I keep it simple for my PK kiddos and kinders by adding 4 to that last numbered year, explaining that the “4 year rule” doesn’t always work.

Challenge older students to figure out the “exceptions to the rule” and explain why.

I’ve included necessary background information for you to use, as well as an answer key through the year 2400, should you want to do more math extensions and data analysis.

I’m Diane from Teach With Me, wishing you a lovely leap day!
