Outdoor Math Activity for Kids
Outdoor Learning Math Ideas
- I hid a bunch of the rocks in a small area of our yard. I had my second grader search for two rocks at a time. When she brought them back, I asked her to add or subtract the numbers.
- We used specific numbers in a small area of the yard. I named a large number and had her find two rocks that added up to that number. (We have enough rocks that we were able to number them 0-100 using both sides of the rocks, so this worked out easily.)
- Using smaller numbers, I showed her two numbers. She had to go off and look for the missing number in a math subtraction equation.
