I'm a teacher from North Carolina with a passion for creating engaging and meaningful resources for other teachers to use in their upper elementary and middle school classrooms. I believe learning should be about discovery and exploration, not rote memorization. I create authentic learning experiences that help students around the world love learning. I hope you love the ideas, inspiration, and resources you'll find here!
This "Figure Me Out" math activity is great for back to school and includes both print and digital versions. Students answer questions about themselves with numbers (example: how old are you, what year were you born, how many people are in your family, etc.) and then come up with math problems for each answer. They write their equations on sticky notes and place them over the answer (or type, drag and drop in the digital version.) Classmates then have a chance to solve the equations to learn more about each other (lifting the sticky notes to check their answers).
(Suggested for grades 3 - 5)
