Sports Day Dilemma - Numeracy Whole Class Game

PDF | 5 pages|Grades: 5 - 6

A whole class game that consolidates your students’ knowledge of measurement and graphing concepts – in a fun way!

We’ve just received a call from Principal Nolan from Rainbow Road Primary School, and they have a real dilemma! They held their highly anticipated sports day today but have unfortunately lost the final points tally. This means they don’t know which team won the sports day. They need your help!

Students are required to use the results from the 3 events provided to determine which team received the most points overall. They will be graphing the points as they go.

The activities include converting units of measurement, finding the average, sequencing and graphing data.

There is a mistake in the answers for the shot put. Zane only threw 4.75cm which is 0.047m not 475 cm as you have stated and therefore he receives no points for his faction. This has an affect on the overall score as well. Thank you
