4/28 The Budjet Game
The first graders completed a Social Studies and Math interdisciplinary project by making their own game boards! In pairs, players learned about maintaining “personal budgets” by applying their subtraction and addition skills as they moved throughout the game.
The fourth graders were very generous with their time, and mentored the pairs to make sure their budgets were calculated correctly! This exercise was also a great lesson on cooperation and patience, as the fourth graders continuously reminded the players about how to correctly apply math concepts.
Well done to all of these young learners! We hope they continue this positive exchange for the rest of the school year, and continue to build on these life skills!
