Race to 100 Outdoors
The children drew their own hundred grid today using chalk. This was a complex task that required much problem solving and communication among children.
Figuring out how to draw the correct number of squares, writing the numbers in each square, and rolling the dice in order to calculate how many spaces to move all require complex math thinking across many domains.
The children used items from nature to mark their places and took turnings rolling and then moving along the grid.
Outdoor play time is perfect for infusing a math challenge into our learning!
