New Year's Day Math Activity Idea
This is one of those holidays that lends itself more to other subject areas because it revolves around the concept of fresh start and renewal. If you get a bit creative, you will find a number of great activities that reinforce concepts you are learning while help kids having some time relevant fun. Here are some activities that we have found to be successful which are themed around New Year's:
Time Travel Math - This is a great way to review quick operations. You can pretend that you have created a time machine that can go back or forward in time. This machine only works by input how far in the future or past you wish to travel. You can give students a scenario and ask them how far in the future or past must they set the machine to? An example might be: The telephone was invented on February 14th, 1876. How many years and days in the past does the machine need to be set to. You could even make them go another step and make them research when that event occurred. This adds an extra level of difficulty.
Time Square Producer - I gave this project to one of my more advanced classes a few years back and they had fun with it. The class was broken into teams of 3 students. They were told that they were the going to do be setting up the New Year's Eve Time Square Ball Drop. They were given a list item that they needed to purchase for the festivities. They were given a week to as a group, on their own time, find all places where they could purchase these items for the cheapest price possible. The team that got the lowest, verifiable price got extra credit.
Word Problem Bonanza - This is one of those perfect times to hit up students with word problems that are themed directly to the holiday. You can make them yourself with situations that are exactly for students of your local community. I find that students respond a great deal more when the work is relevant to them. We also have a bunch of sheets found above with premade word problems. You could also have the best of both worlds and use our word problems and just replace the places or the names of people with those that your students would know for sure.
