Create a Math Game Project Due week of April 22
Step 1: Decide on a topic
Think of a math skill (measurement, multiplication, word problems, place value, order of operations, coordinates, decimals, fractions, volume and area, factors and multiples, properties, exponents, measurement, ….. etc) and make up cards. Center it around a theme (like football, dogs, cats, Marvel Comics, etc….you choose). Make a start and finish spot and places to land on. Be creative. Please type or write up the directions like you would find on a game board and glue them to the back of the board or have them handy for students to play your game. . Please include all playing pieces.
Step 2: Plan
Figuring out the look and rules of your board game will provide you with the ability to carefully craft your perfect board game. You will want to sketch it out before you create it. Bring the sketch to Mrs. Dunn before you start. The sketches can also act as a guide during your stage when you put your board game together. The sketch must be detailed. But laying out your ideas on paper will make building the game easier in the long run. Sketch due by April 5
Step 3: Build your Board
Using cardboard or paper found around your house you can design your board using simple tools such as pens, pencils, markers, and paint. You can use clay to make your movers, real dice or a spinner, or you can make your own dice or spinner. If your game involves problems on cards, make sure they are neat and easy to read. This should be a game that your peers can actually play. I would try it out at home to make sure it all works.
Step 4: Present your game to the class
You will present your game, how it is played and the standard that it addresses to the class.
Fourth Nine Weeks Project
“Book Report with a Flair”
Due: week of April 22
- Select a book of at least 200 pages. It should be a book you have not read before. Have the book approved by Mrs. Dunn.
- Read your book.
- Take an AR test on the book. You MUST get a 70% on the book or better or you will have to read another book. Please do not put this off until the last minute.
- Write an advertisement that is based on your book or information from your book. Your advertisement should be approx. 2 minutes long and can be live action or media produced. The ad should be well written and should encourage your peers to read the book. You should be very creative with your advertisement.
This ad is your presentation to the class. Again, you can create it in a media program or give us the live action version. There should be evidence of time spent creating it. Do not plan to stand in front of the class and just tell us about the book. This should be your original work, I should be able to see your flair within the advertisement. Write a script for your advertisement and turn it in when you present.
- Make a poster about your book. The poster should be on a standard poster board (size 22” by 29”). This poster must include all of the following ..
- Main Characters
- Original Artwork about the book.
Read, read, read!
Mrs. Dunn Expects a word goal of 250,000 words each quarter, we will have a luncheon recognizing everyone who met the goal.
She will also have a luncheon at the end of the year recognizing everyone who met the year's goal, 1,000,000 (one million)
If you don't meet a 20,000 word goal every week, then you will not be able to attend E.A.T (Earned Activity Time)
Completing 20,000 word goal will not get you to your 1 million word goal, but it will help you to manage your reading.
