Cross-Curricular Scavenger Hunt

10/10/2011
In an effort to demonstrate to students how the foundations of elementary school math concepts will help them take on the mathematical challenges of middle school, Mr. Nash's fourth grade joined Ms. Nelson's eighth grade honors Algebra class for a scavenger hunt and project. The timing was perfect as the younger students were learning about measuring and capacity, while the middle schoolers were beginning a unit studying slope (measuring the change in height over change in length). Both groups enjoyed the scavenger hunt throughout campus, as well as the larger group picnic following the joint class.
