†††††††††††††† We challenge you!


The third grade students at J. W. Catharine Elementary School challenge you to participate in our Math Olympics.This lesson helped us integrate our math and science work into a museum visit.It was a little extra work, but having a purpose on our visit really made a difference in the studentís behaviors.I can not wait until next year when I can revise a new and improved version.
