MATH LESSONS INVOLVING MOVEMENT
Using movement to add up to 60
Using movement to identify place value from simple calculations
Using movement to identify the different parts of a whole
Using movement to learn geometric lines
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.
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.
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.
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
Using movement to learn orientation in space
Using movement to build polyhedra and
Using movement to communicate with the semaphore alphabet
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.
This lesson focuses on pupils strengthening their orientation skills with the help of directions (forward – backward, right – left).
This lesson focuses on building polyhedra-like
solids using materials and your own body.
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
Using movement to recognise digital and analog time
Using movement to learn the length of objects
Using movement to understand Venn diagrams
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.
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.
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.
This lesson focuses on introducing pupils to Venn diagrams by having them sort animals into categories based their similar or different eating habits.
