Thanksgiving-Themed WebQuest

Happy November, everyone! Yes, it’s another student inquiry project/webQuest. This one is for middle school math (CCSS grades 5-7), but you could use it for younger advanced learners, or older learners who need some review.

I have come to the realization that we need more real-world learning in the classroom. Why?

1. It makes learning math content more relevant.

2. It makes math more interesting.

3. It requires higher-order thinking and, most times, student collaboration.

Math teachers (especially middle school teachers!) – please take a look at this and take a moment to let me know your thoughts. Is this something you’ll use in your classroom? Why or why not?
Oh, and by the way, I think the SlideShare makes the text look skewed…it doesn’t appear that way in pdf.
