I will be combining third grade mathematics with speed. How long it takes a train to pass.... Any thoughts on how to successfully integrate the two topics?

Yes! Get the Gizmos & Gadgets book(s) from NSTA Press.


In the Grade 3-5 book, the first chapter has several speed activities. Also be sure to read the introduction to learn about Phenomenon-Based Learning.

Feel free to ask me any questions about either the content or pedagogy.
