Drive vehicles around the road

  • Honk the vehicle every time you drive past # 3 etc. Use a tally chart to count how many #3s you find. This can be changed for different numbers or colours.
  • Drive up to a building and drop off mail  (cubes ) to match the number on the building.
  • Use road signs to direct traffic (e.g., stop sign, No Parking, speed limits). These can be made by students or teachers.
  • Add roadblocks or one-way street signs to help students problem solve moving around the map.
  • Ask students to drive around to find the numbers from 1 to 10 in sequence. They can also count backward from 10 to 1,  5 to 1, etc.
  • Drive around the map and cover
  • Drive around and add cubes to the house numbers to create families of 10 e.g., add 3 cubes to number 7, add 5 cubes to number 5
  • Students can name some of the buildings or add signs (e.g., the score for the field).
  • Students can extend the map on craft paper.
  • Add N, S, W, E to the map and ask the students to move the vehicle north and then east etc.
  • Students can add up the house numbers on each block to find out which block has the highest value.
  • Students can find the triangle on the map.
  • Students can write words with three letters for the number 3 e.g., cat, mom, dog. In school, they may look at the word wall.
  • Students can name the streets on the road math playmat
  • Students can compare city streets to country streets. What is the same and what is different?

If you want some padding like Little Bot playmats, you can slide yoga mats or carpet underpadding underneath for added comfort.
