Bounce that Ball: Learn Math While Doing Sports
In first grade, kids learn how to represent and compare data using simple graphs. But with warm weather finally here, who wants to sit inside to practice? Head out to the driveway, ball in hand, for a bouncing challenge. Then use those results to make a colorful graph that lets your child compare her results to those of the challenger (you!)
Even if she wipes the floor with you, don't despair. A rematch gives the loser another shot…plus your kid another crack at graphing practice!
What You Need:
- Ball that can be easily bounced
- Timer or watch with a minute hand
- Markers or crayons
