Three kinesthetic activities geared at learning about rates and conversions. Have your students play paper basketball, hula hoop and jump rope. Using data they record about their own performance (or a partner's) they can extrapolate their results over various spans of time. From baskets per minute to baskets per hour, students will find that they can communicate their results in a variety of ways. Students take ownership of the activity in their participation and learn to appreciate the power of unit rates.
Get your students excited to do math! All instructions are included in the sheets provided. An answer key highlights the type of work students should have. Works as a great reference for students struggling to make the conversions. The document will help your students organize their work/thinking and be able to share their results with peers.
The license is intended for one teacher and all of their classes. Please purchase additional licenses for each additional teacher planning on using these materials in your building. Thanks!
