Math Manipulatives Scoot makes a great first day or first week of school activity for 3rd grade. It’s also a great end-of-year review of what was learned in 2nd grade (fractions will be a preview of 3rd).
Students will think they are playing, when they are really reviewing their knowledge from 2nd grade and getting warmed up for 3rd grade content. As a beginning of year activity in 3rd grade it is a perfect fit for use after a lesson on using tools appropriately or as a way to get students excited about math!
You can also use each station separately as a center throughout the school year to continue the fun!
