Monster Math Bash
November 8, 2012
GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany -- If you were roaming the halls of Garmisch Elementary-Middle School on the afternoon of Oct. 31, you might have seen some strange sights. Students participated in the second annual "Monster Math Bash."
Kindergartners through fifth graders rotated through six different math activities designed to engage and entertain. Activities included candy corn math, pumpkin glyphs, leaf measurement, creating spooky word problems and spider stomping (coordinate graphs).
Parents provided the caramel apples, punch, popcorn and cupcakes. Middle school students ran the activities or served as "monster mates" for younger students. Activities were developed that supported the DoDEA math standards and allowed students the opportunity to practice and sharpen their math skills.
