Ending the Year with Measurement Fun!

 It can be so difficult to keep students on task at the end of the school year, so I like to incorporate some fun projects to practice skills we have learned and improve our teamwork skills. This year, one of our projects was to create a game for our measurement unit in math. 

  

The students worked together to create their games from the ground up – they decided what type of game to make, the materials they needed, and the directions for how to play. I started by sharing this rubric with them so they knew what was expected. Then they had a chance to explore some of the indoor recess and math games we have in our classrooms to come up with ideas. We ended up mostly with board games and one memory/concentration game. I love these types of projects because the students are mostly on task and engaged, and they seem to be having fun!
