A mathematical activity to engage children with converting distances (World Cup theme) Lesson Plan included.
I have included a map of Russia with the football stadiums.
Children must measure the distance between a letter and a stadium. Then because 1cm=35 minutes, they must then calculate how long it would take to get to said stadium.
How long will it take A to get to Kazan stadium?
Using your ruler, measure the distance from A to Krazan stadium.
If it’s 7.6 cm- round to the nearest whole number which is 8cm.
1cm = 35 minutes so 35 x 8 = 280 minutes =4 hours 40 minutes
Children must then fill in a table with their findings.
