I absolutely love this site. Match Fish Tank has a free lesson plan repository fully developed for elementary plus some middle and high. ou can view, share, and download the curriculum used every day at Match Charter School, the PreK-12 public school that was opened 15 years ago in Boston.
These materials have been developed and curated by teachers and curriculum experts over many years. In addition, they have a site for instructional coaches and teacher leaders for professional development. These experts think teachers should spend more time planning how to teach — with the unique learning needs of their students in mind—and less time worrying about the basics of what to teach. Good baseline curriculum and assessments free teachers to do just that.
Match Fishtank is an effort to share our curriculum with teachers everywhere to lessen their load …
Yummy Math provides teachers with an easy way to bring real-life into their math classrooms. It is our belief that when math is explored in contexts that are familiar and of interest to students, students will be more engaged to do math, reason, think critically, question and communicate. Our activities are written to correspond with the NCTM Process Standards and the CCSS Standards for Mathematical Practice.
While the site is free to teachers, to get a solution page in addition to the problems you must pay a nominal fee. The fee is $24.95 and definitely worth it to help support this creation of wonderful resources.
Activities include and exploration of lots of yummy food activities of course, but also interesting explorations of the Iditarod, Super Bowl, weather related units and much much more!
