FoodPlay is a website (PDF file) that focuses on teaching good nutritional habits to young children. Through Tickets to Fresh Adventures, students can take a hands-on approach to learning the benefits of good nutrition. The printable PDF file provides 14 easy-to-prepare, kid-friendly, healthy snacks on ticket-style recipe cards. Instructions for making the snacks are located on the reverse side of each card. Print and laminate the colorful tickets for easy distribution. For a black and white version of the tickets, try this link and have students color their own tickets. Be patient as the Acrobat (pdf) file opens slowly.

tag(s): cooking (34), myplate (28), nutrition (154), preK (279)

In the Classroom

Create a "Recipe of the Day" using the Tickets for Fresh Adventure. Share the recipes on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Or print and laminate the recipes and create a learning center. Break students into small groups and have them create the dish together. Integrate language arts into the fun by including a "Food Journal" to record student thoughts and observations regarding the process of making the dish, the difficulty level and if they would make it again. How about creating a class wiki. Even if students are too young to type themselves, you could highlight the activity for the students and parents to see both in and out of the classroom (with student input, of course). Use the site ChooseMyPlate (reviewed here) to identify the food groups that are used in each recipe. Videotape each group making one of the recipes and use as a class presentation for various skills such as following directions and sequencing. Share the videos on a site such as TeacherTube reviewed here. Teach across the curriculum by adding the math concepts of measurement to the lessons. Be sure to list this site on your class webpage so students (and parents) can try some of these tasty treats at home.

Looking for a way to integrate literature into your math lessons? Check out this site featuring three famous pieces of children's literature: A Light In The Attic, Counting on Frank, and How Big Is a Foot?. These stories are used to teach and reinforce math skills such as geometric figures, estimation, volume, measurement, and more. Some of the lessons include exploring the size of humpback whales, creating "beds" using their footprints, and other creative ideas. Many of these lesson plans and coordinating activities require Adobe Acrobat. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): estimation (46), literature (275), measurement (159), volume (45)

In the Classroom

Take advantage of these FREE lesson plans! Read the stories together as a class. Have students create their own math stories (about geometry or another topic you are teaching). Challenge cooperative learning groups to create online math-based stories using a tool such as Bookemon (reviewed here).

Kids a Cookin' is loaded with simple and easy recipes. Each recipe comes with a how-to video. The site also provides lesson plans and a glossary of terms. Be sure to watch the food safety and healthy eating tips videos prior to the start of cooking activities. There is also a link to view this site in Spanish. (The Spanish, Espanol, button is to the left of the title).

If you use the back button, you may end up in a different language! If this happens, click English or Espanol, to return to the preferred language. This site requires RealPlayer and Adobe Acrobat. You can get both from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): cooking (34), directions (20), measurement (159), spanish (108)

In the Classroom

Use the recipes to enrich lessons about sequencing and directions. Students could write the directions according to what they see on the video or practice following the directions by making the recipes in small groups. They could even present their recipes to the class in a cooking show format. Try having students write the directions in a wiki and enhance it with digital photographs. This site would be a beneficial addition to Family and Consumer Science or health units. You may want to add this link to your class website for students to "cook up some fun" at home.

The US Mint offers two thorough tours about the process of creating collector coins and circulating coins. On the first page of this site, you can choose which tour you would like to complete.

At the Collectors Coin tour, watch as coins are created and released into the collector population. Learn about the difference between collector coins and circulation coins. The US Mint tour takes guests virtually through how coins are made, the history of the Mint, the connection with the government, and how the coins are placed into circulation.

Both tours are thorough and the speaker is clear and to-the-point allowing for various age groups to benefit from watching the video. Choose from a video option or slide show format. This site requires Flash. You can get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

tag(s): coins (8), currency (20), money (193)

In the Classroom

Share the short videos (less than five minutes each) on an interactive whiteboard or projector during your money and measurement unit or as you study economics. Follow up with center time based on creating money and sorting as well as counting various types of money. Also include money from other countries for students to compare and contrast. Have older students summarize the video by using the classroom computer to create a flow chart about the money making process or a graphic organizer with the main points of the videos. This might be a terrific way to teach the study skill of graphic organizers! Students can present their documents on the interactive whiteboard or projectors. Include it on your teacher web page for students to access both in and out of class for enrichment or individual research.

Choose the large print rulers for children with certain IEP requirements and for the primary grades. Allow students to color their rulers to help them remember units by color.

Students can practice math skills independently (and in both English and Spanish) with this collection of challenging, interactive practice activities, organized by grade level and topic. Click Spanish version at the top for your ESL/ELL students to have access to the same valuable resources! The website says the activities are designed for students in grades K through eight. Topics vary greatly and include algebra, statistics, counting, comparing, decimals, basic operations, exponents, fractions, and many others. Nearly every math topic taught in elementary or middle school, will be found at this site. Once you click on the general topic area, be prepared for a HUGE list of specific choices to explore. Each math concept is explained in a simple paragraph and then students are presented with practice activities about the specific concept. The practice activities are timed.

Be aware there are several advertisements at this website (all appropriate). But considering this site is free (and full of ready to go math activities), the advertisements are worth the minor annoyance.

tag(s): estimation (46), exponents (42), measurement (159), mental math (27), money (193), patterns (85), place value (56), statistics (122)

Are you looking for a new twist in your math lessons? Why not use these ready to go math mysteries! Most of the mysteries present students with a short story to read and then a quick math problem to solve at the end. These mysteries are sure to engage your students and promote creative thinking. Although the website may appear as a simple list of activities, this website is a gem. The list of mysteries includes the title, difficulty level, and skill necessary. There are three difficulty levels and eight varieties of skills (including Geometry & Spatial Relations, Fractions & Ratios, Whole Number Operations, Logical Reasoning, and others). There is also a teacher's guide that includes objectives, standards, how to use the activities, extension activities, and assessment.

tag(s): decimals (133), equations (155), fractions (239), logic (235), measurement (159), money (193), patterns (85), probability (130), ratios (53)

In the Classroom

These activities are ideal for a learning center, computer cluster, or individual computers. Why not make a list of all of the mysteries at this site. Have students record the correct answer to each of the mysteries as they complete them.

The mystery activities would also work on an interactive whiteboard or projector. Project the "Mystery of the Day" and have students keep a "Mystery Journal" with all of their answers. Review the answer (and process) together. Challenge students to write some mysteries of their own and share them on a class wiki or blog.

Then differentiate your math lessons by allowing students to work independently on the math skills they are currently acquiring. Even if you have only a single classroom computer, you can provide practice and challenge at all levels. This is also a wonderful site to share as a link from your teacher home page or in your classroom newsletter.

This website provides numerous useful interactive calculators for the metric system. There is a length conversion calculator, a weight conversion calculator, a pressure conversion calculator, a volume conversion calculator and a temperature conversion calculator.

tag(s): temperature (29), volume (45)

In the Classroom

Use an interactive whiteboard and help your students to understand the complexities of conversions. They can use the board to do calculations manually then bring up the calculator to check them or simply develop a better sense of the relative sizes of things using the metric and English measurement systems. This tool is also a handy reference to make available on your teacher web page for metric conversions.

This informational website provides details on numerous elementary mathematical topics. The page is set-up as a question and answer list. Elementary students have asked the questions. Basic concepts such as addition and subtraction are included, along with more complex topics such as infinity and square roots. Students also have the option of "asking Dr. Math" about any concept or question they may be struggling to complete.

tag(s): measurement (159), numbers (204), place value (56), prime numbers (31)

In the Classroom

Search for questions on the math topic you want to focus on. Challenge your students to figure out the answers to the questions posed on this page. You can do this on a projector as a review before a test or to asses prior knowledge of a topic. Then compare your students' responses to Dr. Math's expert advice! You will also want to include it on your teacher web page for students (and parents) to access from home.
