In this activity, learners develop an understanding of cylinders and volume as they compare two sizes of popcorn buckets.
In this activity, learners will be working with predictions with a time frame of one week, or longer. Start by planting seedlings.
Create a “Find Someone” list, with about 10 items, each containing a shape, number, or measurement. Can you find someone in the group with hair about 4 inches long? Someone wearing parallel lines?
In this activity, learners use Starburst® candy to sort, classify, compare, and graph. Learners grab a handful of one-inch candy squares, sort them by color, graph the candy, and discuss the results.
Computers are often used to put lists into some sort of order—for example, names into alphabetical order, appointments or e-mail by date, or items in numerical order.
In this online interactive, learners use fossils to infer temperatures 55 million years ago, at the sites where the fossils were found.
In this activity, learners will explore how different bird beaks work and discover what birds can eat based on their beak shape.
This activity puts a mathematical twist on the familiar “guessing jar.” No guesses allowed, estimates only.
In this activity, learners will create glitter bottles with adult supervision. These are a fun way for little ones to practice observing and making comparisons.
In this activity, learners "go fishing," then practice ruler use and size/pattern comparison with the animals they catch.
Put math of measurement into lining up — and make waiting in line fun. Choose a size characteristic that learners can physically compare, such as foot length or hair length.
Learners explore their surroundings while reasoning about categories and counting.
Even fast computers are limited to how quickly they can solve problems. One way to speed things up is to use several computers at once.
