This department features collections of short activities focused on a monthly theme. These articles aim for an inquiry or problem-solving orientation that includes at least four activities each for grade bands K–2, 3–4, and 5–6. This month's sports theme is designed around many mathematical strands, including problem solving, mathematical communication, geometry, and measurement.
