Super Bowl fun on the Monday after :)

Identify the words that are most important for you to teach!

Here are just a few that I came up with:

football
defense
offense
helmet
jersey
cleats
touchdown
teams
field
stadium

 

  1. Create a word search: http://puzzlemaker.discoveryeducation.com/WordSearchSetupForm.asp?campaign=flyout_teachers_puzzle_wordcross

2. Learn about the parts of the stadium, then have students create their own, and label the parts:

3. Read about the history of the SuperBowl.  Use this as a guide to create a simplified reading passage for your learners, and add 3-5 comprehension questions!

4. Create some word problems around football (see below as an idea):

Patriots scored 21 points, and Browns scored 24 points.  Who scored more?  ___________ Lions scored 42 points and Bears scored 7 points.  How many points did they score altogether? _______ The Eagles had 21 points, and scored a 7 point touchdown, how many points do they have now? ________________

Create problems that are appropriate for your learners.

  • multiplication
  • division
  • addition
  • subtraction
  • comparison of numbers
  • etc.

Present scores of several different teams, and have the students graph the data, then answer some questions.

 

Have fun!!!!
