I teach at a year-round school, and this year, we had to pack up and move for the last three weeks of school so that we could get central air conditioning. It was a crazy move, especially with the younger grades panicking over not knowing where everything is at the new school!
I developed this product for our specific situation and then thought how great it would be to use at the beginning of the year! It will work just as well when the kids are in a new classroom. It is a fun project that lets you assess where they are in so many areas.
You can use this product to teach the following:
A project used to teach
- measurement with different units (CCSS.Math.Content.2.OA.A.1)
- writing and solving multi-step word problems (CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.A.2)
- finding the difference between two measurements of distance (CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.A.4)
Although I designed it to go along with the 2nd grade Common Core, it would also work great with younger grades. Enjoy!
