I am a student teacher in a 5th grade Math classroom. The students will finish up TCAP testing this week. My CT told me that I could do something from the book OR some fun activites/projects with the students.

Any ideas of Math projects, activities, games, etc. would be greatly appreciated. Im up for anything...I love hands on, creative lessons and the students seem to really like them to!

Thank you all so very much! I love ALL of these ideas and I will definitely be using them in class. I printed them off and gave them to my CT so even if I dont get to use them, hopefully they will still come in handy! Again, thank you very much!

quick geometry activity

I recently did an activity during our geometry study with tangrams. I read Grandfather's Tang story and then they each got to pick out their color tangram puzzle and make a picture with it. They had to give their tangram art a title and follow the tangram puzzle rules of using all 7 pieces and they must all touch. The kids really loved this, they were very creative, and this didn't take very much class time.

I am actually going to do a 3 day "project" with tangrams. We are going to talk about area and perimeter with the pieces and then talk about different transformations. On the third day I am going to read Grandfather Tangs Story. I love the idea of having them create their own art with the tangrams! I am going to try to incorporate that if we have time! Thanks for the idea!

I am getting observed for the final time that day. So, not only will the kids love it, but my advisor will as well! : )

The tangram lesson wend fantastic! Thank you all for your input!

I had my last student teaching evaluation when I presented Grandfather Tangs Story. The students and my supervisor loved it!
