Last Friday, the first graders walked into a classroom transformation! Their classroom had turned into Mario Kart Land. They spent the morning going through the design process as they designed cars that they would later wear for the Mario Kart math games. Their cars needed to be able to stay up on them the whole time, as well as, be able to collect gold coins. After the students finished their car prototypes, they tested them out while doing Mario Kart Math. In one game, the students were solving challenging addition problems and then finding a gold coins that had the same sums. Later, they went to the gym with their fourth grade buddies and raced to put sticky note addition problems onto the correct number posters that were all around on the gym walls. It was a day full of student engagement as they worked hard to complete a TON of math problems!
