## Winter Break Assignment

Here is your writing/math assignment for Winter Break. You are to spend 1 hour outside doing a physical activity with someone…anyone….parent, friend, neighbor, cousin, dog, etc. Somehow try to incorporate math into this activity. Perhaps you could go for a walk and find ratios. Or, find the rate at which you walked…..like 2 miles per hour. Or, could have a competition measuring who can run fastest, fartherest, etc. After you complete the activity write about it. You are to turn in a few paragraphs written about the activity and incorporating the math. You are to also include either a drawing or picture of the activity. You may get very creative with this so…have fun and get outside with others! It’s good for you!
