## Over the Rainbow - St Patrick's Day Math Quest Activity

**SKU:**OverTheRainbowMathQuest

Send your students on an epic Math Quest with this fun story “Over the Rainbow.” Even though it has a St. Patrick's Day theme, it still can be used at the end of the year as a fun review activity.

**Distance Learning Update: **I've added a Word Document within the folder that contains a Google Doc link to share this resource with your students via Google Classroom or Drive.

A fun 'easy prep' activity to get some extra math practice in this is great to use as an essential review, enrichment activity or for your early finishers. With seven exciting chapters to work through, students can end up with one of four possible endings as they try to help Leroy McClumsy get his pot of gold back from the giant.

*This differentiated pack includes the same activity ineasy, medium and hard modes.*

It begins with a story, as in the video hook. Then continues in 'chapters.' Each chapter reveals the next part of the story, posing a math task to complete. Once the math task is complete, students may progress to the next chapter. The final chapter will present some choices for actions to take in the story. Students make their choice and then complete the math in that section, carrying out instructions to receive a 'special number.' If they do the math correctly, the special number will match up to their ending of the story on the final page. Four alternate endings to receive! Learn more about Math Quests here.

Great to use for enrichment, early finishers, or a way to get lots of math practice in with a fun twist. Set as independent work or pairs to go on this story adventure.

Preparation & Set-Up

You will need to print, make copies for your students, and have the video ready for viewing to complete this activity. The video hook is for (optional) viewing before starting the paper part of this task. The math component of this activity is on paper, with each chapter presenting a part of the story to read and a math task/challenge or puzzle to 'progress' through the story. At the end of the story, students will be given choices, which leads to one of four alternative endings for them.

Certificates Included!

Printable certificates provided to give to students who complete the Math Quest.
