You can imagine how excited the boys in my classroom were when they saw the words "car race" under our goals for today! We reviewed metric measurement, which they have had a little trouble with. After our review, they got to participate in a car race. Before the activity, we used a meter sticks (100 centimeters) to mark measurements with tape on the floor. Then, each student estimated in centimeters how far they thought their car would go. They LOVED it. They were pretty excited and got a little "off" from the lesson so next time, I'd make the objective a little more clear. Overall, they had a good time!
|This lesson was an idea given to our 4th grade team from our district Math coach.|
