3rd Graders at Pajarito Pick Super Bowl Champs

The school used the big game to incorporate math and family engagement.

During a Super Bowl luncheon at Pajarito Elementary School last week, students and their guests were invited to pick the winner of the game.

Dr. Doug Manning, dean of students, came up with this schoolwide project that incorporated math, democracy and family engagement over a nutritious lunch.

Upon entering the cafeteria, students and visitors were polled and their votes were tallied on two separate charts. After lunch, Dr. Manning gathered all the information and was able to create several charts using the data collected.

The third graders were the only ones who correctly picked the Super Bowl champion Seahawks.

Teachers were able to then utilize these charts in the classroom to explore more ideas on real-world math use.

This activity was a fabulous way to encourage students to see how they can use math for more than just homework.
