Help Tumbleweed get his seeds from his silo to the car by creating a path for him to follow.
Take turns playing the game with your child. You can either take turns finding the secret pieces, or take turns choosing the different pipes to use. See how many levels you can get to in 5 minutes. Take turns setting a kitchen timer!
This activity introduces your child to grids and plotting points on a grid. This game meets many expectations in multiple grades, one of which is:
Math: Geometry and Spatial Sense
Identify and describe the location of an object using a grid map, and reflect two-dimensional shapes.
- Use an atlas or other map book to extend the "plotting points" lesson even further! Take turns locating different locations on the maps using the letter/number grid for younger students and the latitude/longitude correspondence for older students.
- Using large squared graph paper, create your own grid. Place letters at the top, and numbers down the side. Tell your child to plot different items at different locations. For example, "Draw a circle at C6". Take turns being the caller and the mapper.
