Real-World Math Projects for Gifted Learners, Grades 4-5
- Available for pre-order. Item will ship after February 22, 2022
Helping to bring mathematics and engineering to life, these challenging lessons give teachers an exciting tool for engaging advanced learners through creativity and hands-on products. Units are driven by standards and invite students to become baseball field architects, create flying jellyfish, make a gnome hat parachute, scale skyscrapers and more! Each project includes step-by-step lesson plans with reproducible templates, time estimates, and a materials list. While centered on STEAM competencies, true to real-world experiences, these hands-on projects span the curriculum – including writing and public speaking – and while they suit entire classrooms and smaller groups, they can also be easily adapted to individual projects for independent study and home school.
