By third grade, most kids can manage bikes pretty well, and a lot of them are bombing around. Especially in our fitness-conscious world, communities are encouraging kids to get out and ride more and more, too.
Back in the classroom, third graders are working on their multiplication, fractions, and division, extending work they started in the early grades. And in social studies, a common third grade topic is the history and geography of your local community. Then in our media, they can read all about the adventures of Tour de France-level speed bikers, tearing up the world's most challenging routes.
Here's a creative way to bring all these worlds together…and support key third grade social studies and math learning while you're at it.
