Horace Mann Sixth Graders Prepare for Super Bowl
Horace Mann Middle School Sixth graders began their Super Bowl celebration the week before the big game. Each day the students participated in Super Bowl themed lessons and activities. In math, the students on teams 6-1 and 6-2 were given NFL team names and competed in the mathematical problem solving Super Bowl. A champion team was crowned each period. In science, the students worked their higher order thinking skills by completing a logic puzzle on Green Bay Packer Super Bowl history. In social studies, students used an atlas to locate cities that had hosted the prior forty-four Super Bowls. Students found the latitude and longitude or each team's city and plotted them on a map. In language arts, students created Packer and Super Bowl poetry. Most students wrote acrostic poems and others wrote haikus.
To end the week, on Friday afternoon the sixth grade teachers held a Super Bowl party in the cafeteria for all of their students. At the party the students enjoyed traditional Super Bowl fare that included hot dogs, chips and lemonade. Students danced to music and had an opportunity to play washer toss, bean bag toss, football passing through a hoop, ping pong toss and a game of flag football on Horace Mann's frozen tundra behind the cafeteria. All week students and staff showed their Packer, Steeler and Super Bowl spirit by wearing their team apparel.
