When I saw Fun in First was having a “Favorite Back to School Activity” linky party, I just had to join!
One of my favorite back to school activities is the Mathematical Me! Activity. I have done this in some form the past two years. I have each student answer questions that have numerical answers (such as How old are you?). They then have to create a math problem where their answer is also the answer to the problem. For example, I am 26 so my equation could be
The student answer about 10-20 questions like this. They then create their own pop quiz with 8 of their own questions as well as an answer key. The students then switch quizzes with a partner and answer the partner’s questions to find out more about the partner. Students then present 10 facts about their partner to the class. The catch is they have to discuss the answers with the partner to make sure they are correct AND to find out at least 2 more facts.
I decided to finally type all of this up and created this pack for my TpT store. It is geared towards upper elementary and middle school.
