A PowerPoint providing a series of warm up activities for Year 1 students across the curriculum.
This teaching resource is an interactive PowerPoint which provides a series of mathematical warm up activities that cover areas across the curriculum. You can do these quick activities to help warm up for a particular focus lesson, or use them to break up the day to keep students fresh for learning. Some activities supply instructions for interactive games and other are interactive templates which you can display on your classroom whiteboard with a projector.
Each activity has direct links to learning goals in the Australian Curriculum.
Areas of learning included:
Number and Algebra
