We at UCMAS believe in taking Thanksgiving to a whole new level. It’s more than just turkey and cranberry sauce; it’s about infusing the enchanting world of UCMAS abacus math into the fabric of your celebrations.
In this blog, we unveil a cornucopia of educational and delightful activities designed to do more than just sharpen your child’s mathematical prowess. We aim to immerse them in the joy of celebration, transforming the holiday into an opportunity for learning and growth. From Abacus Turkey Feathers to the Turkey Trot Measurement challenge, each activity brings a unique blend of fun, gratitude, and mathematical exploration to your Thanksgiving festivities.
It’s time to celebrate your Thanksgiving with UCMAS, where education becomes an integral part of the holiday season.
1. Abacus Turkey Feathers:
Let’s kick off the festivities with the vibrant Abacus Turkey Feathers activity. Envision a turkey cutout adorned with mathematical challenges on each feather. As your children conquer these problems using abacus maths, watch the colorful plumage of their turkey grow, turning learning into a festive spectacle
2. Thanksgiving Counting Cornucopia:
Transform the humble abacus into a magical Cornucopia counter! Using this ancient counting tool, children engage in the delightful task of counting Thanksgiving-themed items like pumpkins, apples, or corn. It’s a joyful way for kids to practice abacus education while immersing themselves in the Thanksgiving spirit.
3. Abacus Gratitude Chain:
Build a chain of gratitude that intertwines learning and thankfulness. Each link represents something a child is thankful for, and as they add links, they perform abacus calculations to determine the chain’s total length. It’s a beautiful union of gratitude and mathematical exploration.
4. Thanksgiving Math Bingo:
Bingo takes a Thanksgiving twist as math problems replace traditional numbers. Engage in this thrilling bingo game, where children mark their cards with answers derived from abacus education. It’s a fun-filled way to turn Thanksgiving into a learning extravaganza.
5. Abacus Maze Challenge:
Navigate through a maze of mathematical wonders! This challenge combines problem-solving and maze navigation, with children using abacus maths at each turn. Successfully reaching the Thanksgiving feast becomes a rewarding journey through numbers.
6. UCMAS Corn on the Cob:
Corn on the cob becomes a visual aid for mathematical exploration. Children solve problems related to the number of corn kernels, enhancing their UCMAS skills while enjoying a-maize-ing learning.
7. Abacus Pie Slices:
Visualize a pie chart divided into educational slices. Each slice holds a mathematical challenge, and as children solve them using abacus techniques, they get to ‘cut’ a slice of both knowledge and a delicious pie, creating a delightful and educational Thanksgiving treat.
8. Turkey Trot Measurement:
Incorporate measurement into the festivities with the Turkey Trot challenge. Using abacus math, children calculate the distances their paper or plush turkeys can ‘trot’ across the table. It’s an active, playful, and educational addition to your Thanksgiving celebration.
