Math Activities for Home

Many schools are closed and either doing learning online or sending work home. I also thought it might be a good time to do suggest some activities for children to do at home that might not require the internet.

Cooking –
·      follow a recipe and measure ingredients.
·      Treasure Hunt  #1 – Give the student 5-7 different measurements. Have the student find items that measure that size.
·      Treasure Hunt #2 – Give the student 5-7 items and have the student measure them.

·      Put different amounts of money in small plastic bags. Number each bag. Have the student count the money in each bag.
·      Pretend that you are a customer and give the student paper money as if to buy a certain amount.  Have the student count back change that you should get.
·      Learn to figure out gratuities.
·      Learn to figure out sales tax on different amounts.
·      Learn to fill out tax forms.


·      Have the student find objects that match different shapes.
·      Have the student draw a scale model drawing of a room or an object in the room.
·      Have the student draw a diagram of the house.

Checking Accounts
·      Give the student a list of check amounts and deposits. Make up a fake check register. Have the student keep the balance in the check register.

What other math activities would you suggest? Please share.
