Sample Activities

(Background information only - not required reading)

  • Be aware the Let's Game! challenges are not traditional math problems. 

  • Be aware some children may not have an inquiring or risk-taking nature. 

  • Be aware that quite intelligent and academic students may not necessarily cope easily with free-wheeling activities.

  • Be aware that if your child needs a lot of guidance, strict routines, precise instructions they may not enjoy this type of exercise. 

For example - ask your child:

  • How many people do you think could stand on that mat? How did they get their answer?

  • What is the biggest thing that could be wrapped entirely with a sheet of newspaper (without touching the paper)? How did they get their answer?

  • Give them a sheet of paper and say, "What could you make with that?"How did they go?

  • What could you use a brick for? How many different answers can they give?
