Our popular math club, Bedtime Math’s Crazy 8s, has just begun season 2. Crazy 8s is a math club where you’ll build stuff, toss beach balls, make amazing mazes and more! You’ll have a blast with mischief-making activities like Beach Ball Party, Funny Money, and Glow-in-the-Dark City. Crazy 8s meets Tuesdays at 5:30 PM for 4K-2nd grade and Thursdays at 5:30 PM for grades 3-5.
Week 1 (10/30 & 11/1) – Glow-in-the-Dark-City: Take geometry to the next level! Learn to recognize some important 3-D shapes, then build a giant skyscraper of glowsticks and styrofoam balls. Flick off the lights to see your creations!
Week 2 (11/6 & 11/8) – Crazy 8s Race: Play a brand new board game: roll dice to travel around a figure 8, and bring on your teammates when numbers match up. See who makes it to 8×8 first!
Week 3 (11/13 & 11/15) – Funny Money: We’ll bet money you’ll love this one! Have fun comparing coins, buying prizes with them, and finally winning them in an extreme version of Rock, Paper, Scissors!
Week 4 (11/27 & 11?29) – Beach Ball Party: This is a party you won’t want to miss! You’ll use our star-studded beach ball to play volleyball, then go gaga chucking the ball against targets to score points.
Week 5 (12/4 & 12/6) – Funky Fractals: Get funky with patterns and mazes! Create crazy patterns with wax sticks, and connect them to make a giant version. Then design your own waxy maze to stump your friends.
Week 6 (12/11 & 12/13) – Walk on the Wild Side: How do ladybugs, crabs, and lizards run to fast wiith all those extra legs? They use math! We’ll run, walk, and gallop like animals to learn some fancy footwork.
Week 7 (12/18 & 12/20) – Super-Cube Shuffle: Math and art collide when you use specially colored cubes to create cool designs. After a round of design copy mania, you’ll be a super-cube pro!
