We have put together this collection of camping in the classroom activities to make an exciting and engaging end of the year unit for your classroom. The last week of school can be difficult. You still need to teach but it can be hard to gain and hold the attention of your students. We think a camping unit is a perfect way to keep your students engaged!
Bump! Math Game A classic bump game in a camping theme.
ABC order This center is designed for easy differentiation. The ABC order cards are color coded. We have provided three recording sheets. Assign the just-right sheet to each student.

Go Fish This fish-themed center is a go fish game. Print and laminate. Students solve simple addition facts.
