Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes East Falmouth Elementary School teacher Nicole Mele Outdoor Lesson for June.
Falmouth Outdoor Learning Project Recognizes East Falmouth Elementary School teacher Nicole Mele Outdoor Lesson for June. Ms. Mele is a fourth grade teacher with the Falmouth Public Schools.
Ms. Mele reflected upon this engaging and fun lesson called "Math Review Scavenger Hunt" and is willing to share the lesson with any other teachers who are interested!
This lesson reviewed many of the math concepts that the students learned this year. Students were given a recording booklet and asked to find examples in the courtyard. Some of my favorite discoveries were when finding a fraction, a student found that 2/36th of the grates in the drain were clogged with wood chips. Another student standing near commented that it could be reduced to 1/18th. When looking for angles, the students found the obtuse angle roof above the library and acute angles on leaves. On a rotation, a couple of students at a time were chosen to water the garden. It was exciting to not only see the student recalling all of the math concepts that we learned this year, but also staying engaged on a hot June day.
Congratulations to Ms. Mele!
