What's That You Say? Math Tools for Play?

Help me give my students the chance to learn through the exploration of math-related tools, such as pattern blocks, base ten blocks, and fraction rods.

My Students

My students are inquisitive and excited to learn. They especially love hands-on learning that allows them to explore and manipulate their materials - one of the most powerful and effective ways of learning. In an age where so much learning has been done on computers, I want to give them a chance to get back to learning through manipulating and handling objects. I feel more than ever that they need these opportunities.

My Project

My students want the opportunity the build their minds through play and exploration. This project provides them with tools for fun STEAM challenges and games that allow them to implement the learning standards in a fun and exciting way. Some games include "Pentomino Symmetry", and "What's the Value of Your Structure?", using base ten blocks. These games and challenges will excite even my most reluctant learners, while encouraging all my students to persevere through challenging tasks in fun and playful ways. From patterning with craft sticks, to going on a "Shopping Spree" for grocery items, there's something for everyone!
