Get math skills hopping with this fun, full-body activity!
Have a contest to see who can leap or jump the farthest. Have each person jump as far as they can from a starting point. Measure and record each distance. Discuss the data by comparing the lengths or ordering the lengths from smallest to largest. You can also create a bar graph with the data to represent it visually.
As an extension, research how far other animals can jump (frogs, kangaroos, etc.) and compare the distances to your results. This is a great way to incorporate physical activity and mathematics skills while celebrating leap day!
