Baseball and Birthdays

Puns aren't limited to language arts! Bring some giggles to your math class with worksheets that prompt kids to find the answers to riddles by rounding decimals to the tenth place or comparing fractions, and by graphing ordered pairs. Each activity provides the coordinates and the graph with the beginning of an illustration drawn out for kids to complete.

Instructional Ideas

  • A fun activity for a substitute teacher day
  • Use in a homework packet to expand what kids have learned about graphing ordered pairs in class
  • A good addition to a math assessment or quiz
Classroom Considerations

  • The solution to each riddle is written upside down at the bottom of the page; consider covering that part up before copying the worksheet
  • Each illustration is easy to make out before kids do much graphing, which might discourage them from working out each coordinate
Pros

  • A cute way to reinforce both place value and graphing
  • Two lessons focus on both fractions and decimals
Cons

  • None

Lesson Planet has helped me dramatically, giving me instant access to so many lessons, worksheets and rich ideas. It has helped me to continue to deliver high interest instruction to students with cross categorical special needs in high school inclusive settings, which is no simple matter. Due to the ease, quickness and richness of the materials on this site, my life as a first year teacher has been made infinitely better to say the least.
