Today's Giveaway: Math Olympic Games for KidsToday's giveaway is one of the only resources in my teachers pay teachers that is not an early literacy resource. Math Olympics is an activity I used with my students to teach measurement concepts in math and science.
In this Common Core Aligned activity, students will practice measurement skills by competing in a fun measurement Olympics. There are five games included in this math olympics: torch relay, pool noodle javelin, big lid discus, marble weightlifting, and basketball speed shoot. There is also an activity called Metric Me that can be used to introduce the math olympics activity. The printable includes a teacher's guide, descriptions of each event, alignment to the common core curriculum, a supply list for each event, printable signs for each event, printable student directions to post for each event, recording sheets for students, printable gold, silver, and bronze medals, and a certificate of completion for each student. This activity would probably be best for 3-5 grade classrooms. You can find this product in my teachers pay teachers store here. Here's a sample of one of the games you'll find in the pack.

Today I have a special gift for EVERYONE! Get the Metric Me activity that is part of this unit for free! Metric Me is a measurement activity where students measure their body parts (in metric units of course) and record the measurements. This is a fun way to practice metric measurements of length as students measure the length of their hair, the width of their smile, and more. This is Olympic themed so it goes great with the math measurement olympics. I have to give a shout out to my dad who designed this activity many years ago while writing a curriculum for teaching science in the elementary grades. I just updated his hand drawn activity from years past! You can get this freebie by clicking here.
