Not a Sports Lover?

If you are not into sports or football, look at your family interests and find a way to integrate Math.  If you love animals, graph the sizes of your favorite animals. Or, graph the weights of your favorite newborn animals.

If you like astronomy, find the ratios of each planet to the earth.  Or, graph the sizes of each planet.

    Great post! We watch the Super Bowl, but really just for the commercials, lol. We are soccer fans here. Both of my boys play twice a year (spring and fall seasons) and have since they were both 5 years old (they are 7 and 12 now). Having said all that, the Fox Soccer Channel is one of my oldest’s favorite channels. I think I will share these ideas with him and just substitute soccer teams for football teams and soccer championship games, like the World Cup, for the Super Bowl! 🙂

    Again, great post! Thanks for sharing!

  2. My daughter loves sports, so we are doing the science of why the ball bounces in basketball as well as integrating character studies from God’s word regarding teamwork, etc. Often, we will shoot and spell words one letter at a time or do trivia then shoot, next, I plan on making a map for the driveway of the us and shooting from different states, then, if you miss, then, if you can say the capital, a famous landmark, etc you will get another shot. 😉 We also use it with math. And, we use the newspaper to locate the latest stats on who won which game, etc. She loves the outdoors and sharing our faith as a family. She is also raising money for camp, (stewardship), so we will go on nature walks, take stems / leaves / flowers, press them, then put them in the laminating machine, identify them (science), acknowledge character lessons of God through his creation, then, make it a bookmark, often with a scripture, to sell in our etsy store, with a section dedicated to a portion of the money going to support the Wounded Warrior project and a local missionary family. She has also done the same with paperweights, those have been great. With every package, including our used curriculum, we send out a tract that is unusual or some form of ministry of the gospel.
