My students need lots of practice to master addition with regrouping, so I created this fun game to help them practice. This activity supports sol 3.3b, create and solve single-step and multi-step practical problems involving sums or differences of two whole numbers, each 9,999 or less. The students make a big circle around the room and play a cakewalk style game. When the teacher stops the music, they sit in front of the closest card and add the two numbers. Students use their knowledge of place value and estimation to determine if their answer is reasonable. Movement activities are always a big hit in my classroom! This game is one of my students’ favorites!

This is a cross-curricular activity that uses the story Alexander, Who Used to Be Rich Last Sunday to practice money and decimal skills in addition to reading and writing skills. After reading or hearing the story, students will complete the attached worksheet. (If it's read aloud, students would need a way to refer back to the story to answer the questions. The worksheet has a mixture of reading and math questions. It can be edited if you choose. It can be used for either 3rd or 4th grade. With slight modifications, it could also be used for middle school EL students to learn about currency.

The goal of this activity is to build critical thinking skills and excitement for Computer Science / Computational Thinking, while laying a foundation of fundamental programming concepts. By scaffolding basic concepts like sequencing and algorithms in an unplugged activity, students who are intimidated by computers can still build a foundation of understanding. In this lesson, students will learn how to develop an algorithm and encode it into a program.By "programming" one another to draw pictures, students experience some of the core concepts of programming in a fun and accessible way. The class will start by having students view a video of a simple program demonstrating how to develop instructions for building a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Students will start with simple shapes, and progress to the coding of a specific drawing that other students will then try to replicate (“running the program”). If there is a desire to have a more of a Math slant on the lesson, the drawing could take place on graph paper. Students would then use the coordinates to complete the drawing.

In the field of computer science, there are two approaches to solving a problem. One, being Brute Force, which is the method of just working out the problem until it is solved. This can be related to students with the idea of never giving up, or "I think I can, I think I can". Divide and Conquer is a problem solving method that braeks a larger problem into smaller problems. For example, if you have a big chore such as cleaning a house, start with one room at a time. This lesson applies these two methods to mathematics by using Brute Force to find multiples and common multiple of numbers. While the Divide and Conquer method is applied to fiding factors of a number through divisibility rules.

This science and math lesson uses coated candy and water to create a rainbow on a plate. It takes a popular internet activity and modifies it for the classroom. It's extended by having students hypothesize if other temperatures of water will work and if different colors of the candies run faster than others. It also meets the math SOLs because students can calculate the cost of the experiment and/or create graphs of the results of the experiments. You could extend this activity into art or English writing by having students draw their rainbows or write about what they saw happening on the plate as a report writing. You could have them take it a step further and do a creative writing about what they think is at the other end of the rainbow.
