 1. Fraction Tracks Using a board game, a fifth-grade class studies and practices fractions and equivalent fractions. 2. Hexominoes A fifth-grade class studies geometry by creating hexominoes, figures made up of six squares. 3. The Location A sixth-grade teacher uses a secret location game to teach the class about statistics, connections, and reasoning. 4. Building Viewpoints Seventh-graders learn about spatial sense and geometry from a blueprint of ancient buildings. They then create their own three-dimensional models and draw them from different viewpoints. 5. The Largest Container Seventh- and eighth-grade students work on geometry and measurement as they attempt to create the largest container from a single sheet of paper. 6. Building Rafts With Rods Groups of students learn about patterns, functions, and problem-solving as they calculate the surface area and volume of various-sized rafts, then graph their data.
