Outdoor Math: Fun Activities for Every Season
All kids love to play outdoors, but who says that playing and learning can’t go hand-in-hand? The next time your little ones are out of playtime ideas, turn to Emma AdBåge’s book Outdoor Math for assistance. This clever book gives ideas for games and activities that youngsters will enjoy immensely, but which also happen to engage their minds in new ways. Divided by season, there are two dozen different fun games that will help kids work with numbers and early math concepts, plus a few pages in the back that focus on the specifics of addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. In the spring, try a group treasure hunt, complete with hand-drawn maps. In the summer, count clouds or try the Secret Number Line game. Autumn is a great time for outdoor tic-tac-toe, while in winter kids can time how long it takes a snowman to melt. These are simple games that are perfect for kindergartners and early elementary school-age students, great for playing outside of school or for incorporating into a homeschool environment. With colorful pictures and easy instructions, this book is sure to be a hit!
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
