Summer Math Fun: Vacation Planning

May 21, 2018

 

It's time for another edition of our Summer Math Fun series! Every child looks forward to those magic words "We're going on vacation!" Make the build up to your summer family trip fun as well as educational with these math practice ideas.

Suitcase Math

When packing, ask your child to estimate how many shirts, pants, socks, etc. will fit in their suitcase.

Navigation Prep

Use GoogleMaps to see how far the trip is and have your child calculate the gas and mileage of your car. 

Map Mastery

Use yarn to approximate the distance between two locations on a map and have them use the legend to see what the actual distance in kilometres is.

Plan the Itinerary

Create a list of activities with start and end times and have your child make a time schedule for each day on the trip.

Budgeting

Have a set budget for the day/entire trip and have your child help organize your funds between events, activities, food, and housing.

 

We wish you very happy summer travels!
