Pokemon cards are very popular in the Year three class. So I decided what a great motivator to bring the cards into the learning. In Mathematics we are learning about Data Handling. The students are using the Pokemon cards to create a database using Purple mash, 2Investigate. After they have built their database they can use the information to create different graphs, sort the data and write a report on their findings. They are all so highly motivated as you can see from the photos.
The children have also shown me how to play the game during a Math lesson as there is an incredible amount of math involved especially adding and subtracting of tens and hundreds.
