Active Math Movements
Active math movements are designed to give your students physical exercise while practicing one-to-one correspondence or skip counting. These movements do not require any materials and are perfect for short brain breaks throughout your school day!
Our active math movements are broken into two sections – whisper/loud movements and skip counting movements. Whisper/loud movements are the building blocks for skip counting movements.
Once students have mastered whisper/loud movements, they can move on to the skip counting movements, where they eliminate the whisper and only skip count.
During the event introduction, we’ll do a few of these movements to warm up!

THE HISTORY-THEMED SCAVENGER HUNT
WELCOME TO ANCIENT EGYPT
The year is 1914. Dr. Howard Carter, the famed archaeologist and explorer, is en route to the land of Egypt with a crew of archaeologists (including you!) to excavate the wondrous Valley of the Kings! This valley has housed the tombs of ancient Egyptian nobles and royal family members for around 4,000 years!
The trek from the capital of Cairo to the ancient city of Luxor is a long one, but Dr. Carter has trusted you to navigate the crew to the famous valley to begin excavation. Carter believes the valley still holds secrets and a mysterious pharaoh lays waiting to be discovered – you just need to get there first. Good luck!
