    Weekly Project Challenges


    Build towers of different sizes using blocks or other small, light objects. Talk with your child about which towers are tallest, shortest, widest, and thinnest.


    Choose an everyday object familiar to your child, such as their hand, a stuffed animal, or a crayon. Trace and cut out the object and use it to measure items around the home. For example, how many crayons long is the dog? How many of Dad’s shoes tall is the front door?

    K-3rd Grade

    Choose a recipe to make and put your child in charge of measuring ingredients. Discuss the types of measurements used in the recipe (volume, weight, time, etc.) and the tools used to measure them (measuring cups, scales, clocks, etc.).

    4th-6th Grade

    Choose a recipe with your child that they can make independently or together with you. Have your child adjust the yield of the recipe, halving or doubling it, and convert measurements as needed.

    7th-8th Grade

    Count a small package of multicolored candy, such as gummy bears or Skittles, by color. Calculate the color ratios in percent and fractions, then create a pie chart and bar graph of your results.

    9th-12th Grade

    Plan your dream vacation. Would you go with a group? If so, how many? Look up the price for plane tickets, hotels, food, car rental, and attractions. Add and multiply as needed to find out how much you’d need to save for your ideal getaway.
