Ms. Carlson’s Second Grade class worked with Ms. Hintz our ITS in the computer lab to get turtles to the pond! This was a super fun way to explore math and social studies TEKS that align with the Second Grade Curriculum in mapping and plotting a course through measurement. Students navigated to our School Website and the “for Students” page where Ms Hintz hid a turtle. If you want to go directly to the pond yourself, go to: http://illuminations.nctm.org/ActivityDetail.aspx?ID=83. Once on the site, students came up with navigating directions to send their turtle to the pond. Those that dared tried to do it without the grid and added obstacles. Many want to challenge their parents to see if they can do it. Most think their parents will their need help! So parents, can you get the turtle in the pond?
Thank you to Sommer Elementary ITS, Jen Freeman, for sharing this activity!
