Description of Idea
The stations need to be set up to include:
Students are paired with a classmate. Each pair begins in the recipe box and selects a recipe. They run to the grocery store and shop for all the items in their recipe. Students jump to the checkout lane and add up all their groceries. Then they skip to the kitchen and work at a station.
At each station there is a single jump rope, pencil, division sheet, and multiplication sheet. The students divide the recipe in half while the partner is jumping rope. They switch when completed. Then the students multiply the recipe by two and switch when completed.
When finished in the kitchen they take their work to their manager for work approval. While the manager is checking their work they run around the "Block" (the gym).
Change the locomotor skills being used each time.
Check for proper performance of the locomotor skills and correct math computations.
Adaptations for Students with Disabilities
