I'm looking for fun math ideas to finish up the year. We've gotten through our text book and I'd like to spend the last 4 weeks doing a fun math unit. Any ideas?

I always end with Geometry art. I have the kids build geomeric shapes with straws and strings and gum drops with tooth picks. Check out Laura candlers web site math draw and do the tangram challenges.

The very last week it all about problem solving and thinking games----like mancala with chalk and rocks out on the playground.

if you are looking for math stuff of all kinds I think you should join the math group at yahoo called mathmatters5-6. It's free and usually has a wide range of units.

We are also finished with the book. I have done a couple of things to prepare them for sixth grade, but the last couple of weeks I am doing some consumer math. I plan on bringing in menus and other priced items. Students will have to calculate discounts and taxes. We will also do a mini-project where students "apply for a job", and we will discuss gross pay, net pay, and even do some grocery shopping.
