Corn Math

Top Subjects:  Animals   Art/Architecture   Geography   Health   History   Math   Reading   Science
Resource:Corn Math
Provider:Camp Silos
Summary:Age Range: All (All grades; children with parental supervision). At this archived website you will find interesting corn-themed activities and lessons in math (and more!) that are geared for about 4th grade and up. However, there is material that younger children will enjoy as well.
Description:When you get to the site you will see quick facts about corn math, corn products, and corn geography. But that’s not all! There is a menu at the top of the page with lessons and web-based activities designed for classroom use (that can be tweaked for home use) that include:
  • History Detective - A remarkable exploration of the history of corn including Native American folk tales about corn.

  • Scavenger Hunt - Take the challenge and find the answers to the questions about corn by following Internet links to information resources. Then take the “Corny Quiz.”

  • Newsroom - Develop a video segment about corn production for KORN-TV by following the lesson plan and using web-based research.

  • Mystery Photo - An exploration of the microscopic world of corn.

  • Amazing Mazes: Find out about the history of corn mazes. Then create your own computer-generated maze!
Then on the side bar, check out:
  • Teachers - The teacher section offers an outline of the lessons contained at this site, along with information on curriculum standards addressed by the lessons. It provides background and resources that will help with lesson presentation. Remember, this was designed with the classroom teacher in mind — so some of this may not be as helpful to the home educator.

  • Resources - Contains many links to other websites about corn.
Note: Many of the links on this site are good, but we did find a few dead links since this is an archived site. Regardless, there is so much information here that the dead links are more of a nuisance than a deterrent to learning.
