## MATH LESSONS INVOLVING MOVEMENT

##### Using movement to add up to 60

This lesson focuses on pupils practicing double-digit addition
by throwing dice to find out which 2 digits to add, after which they jump to the correct sum written on a hopscotch board.

##### Using movement to identify place value from simple calculations

This lesson focuses on calculation operations (addition and subtraction) as well as counting. Pupils will have to find the correct answer to the calculations and correctly count the numbers. Then they have to launch balls in the corresponding baskets.

##### Using movement to identify the different parts of a whole

This lesson focuses on introducing pupils to a visual representation of fractions by dividing them into groups and instructing members of the performing group to complete different movements, so that the rest of the class can identify how many pupils out of the entire group are doing which movements.

##### Using movement to learn geometric lines

The lesson focuses on learning lines used for geometry concepts. Pupils must find the right type of line by taking into account the characteristics of each according to geometric principles. Pupils will follow the teacher’s instructions and will walk over specific lines.

##### Using movement to form numbers with multiplication and division

The lesson focuses on practicing multiplication and division by asking pupils to spin the wheel to land on a number and apply the appropriate math operation to demonstrate how they can form that number.

##### Using movement to learn orientation in space

This lesson focuses on pupils strengthening their orientation skills with the help of directions (forward – backward, right – left).

##### Using movement to build polyhedra andpolygons

This lesson focuses on building polyhedra-like
solids using materials and your own body.

##### Using movement to communicate with the semaphore alphabet

This lesson focuses on communication and spelling out numbers using Semaphore alphabetic and numeric coding.

##### Using movement to calculate sides and edges of geometric shapes

This lesson focuses on pupils identifying the sides and edges of geometric shapes by placing simple shapes (circles, squares, triangles and rectangles) on a canvas according to placement cues and collaboratively constructing a new, more complex shape.

##### Using movement to recognise digital and analog time

This lesson focuses on pupils identifying analog and digital clocks time by playing a game of memory with cards and then replicating the hands of the clocks with their bodies.

##### Using movement to learn the length of objects

This lesson focuses on pupils using parts of their bodies to measure objects and convert the lengths into centimetres, allowing them practice identifying units of measurement.

##### Using movement to understand Venn diagrams

This lesson focuses on introducing pupils to Venn diagrams by having them sort animals into categories based their similar or different eating habits.
