Interactive Inquiry-based Math in the Outdoors
2020-2021 Provincial ProD, Oct 23rd
In a small distanced group outdoors try out activity ideas for engaging, curriculum-linked K-7 Math (moved online in case of heavy rain). Topics include measurement, geometry, graphing and probability, many of which are also Science Curricular Competencies. Materials include outdoor plants, the architecture and cars of our cityscapes, and common classroom objects. Activities can be used fluidly between in-person, hybrid, and fully-online teaching formats. Documentation for each activity includes: Competencies and Content connections for Math (and Science where relevant), materials and procedure, any links to the ingridscience.ca database with hundreds of science activities and lesson plans. If you are looking to build your hands-on activity collection, or are starting to bring interactive math and science to your students, ingridscience workshops bring new activity ideas in an environment of discussion and sharing favourites.
Registration opens early September. Contact Ingrid to be notified when registration opens.
