Bicycle Math - 3rd Grade Math Games

If we can make math more engaging for kids there's no doubt they will do better at it. 3rd grade math games are great to add to every child's math learning. As a teacher, I know how important this is.
By third grade, most kids ride bikes pretty well, and a lot of them are bombing around. Especially in our fitness-conscious world, communities are encouraging kids to get out and ride more and more, too.
In class, third graders are working on their multiplication, fractions, and division, extending work they started in the early grades. And in social studies, a common third grade topic is the history and geography of your local community. Then in our media, they can read all about the adventures of Tour de France-level speed bikers, tearing up the world’s most challenging routes.
