Forest School held its annual Spring Family Math Night on March 31 with more than 200 students and parents participating and more than 40 teachers and staff members coordinating activities. The families were treated to a pizza and salad dinner, followed by over a dozen activities ranging from basketball shooting, bean bag tosses, fishing for flashcards, hop scotch, and even an adaptation of “Price is Right” TV show game ‘Plinko.’  All of the games were designed or adapted to incorporate math and problem-solving skills ranging from computation to estimation to consumer math to measurement.  The activities were organized for the whole family to play and work together.  Students earned raffle tickets for completing each station and were able to ‘take their chances’ on over 20 different prizes.
